ABSTRACT. Despite the relevance of emotional and psychological distress related to COVID-19 isolation, quarantine, and physical distancing, only limited research has been conducted on this topic. Using and replicating data from Chapman University, Harvard Medical School, Holmes et al. (2020), Ipsos MORI, MQ, Nursing Times, Rek et al. (2020), Rethink Mental Illness, UNC School of Medicine, and VMIAC, I performed analyses and made estimates regarding exposure to COVID‐19 pandemic stress, depression, and anxiety. The results of a study based on data collected from 5,400 respondents provide support for my research model. Using the structural equation modeling, I gathered and analyzed data through a self-administrated questionnaire.
