ABSTRACT. The purpose of this study was to empirically examine mental and emotional risks of frontline healthcare providers involved in responding to COVID-19 pandemic. Building my argument by drawing on data collected from AMS, BMA, GWI, HHD, MedPage Today, MQ, Qualtrics, and SEIU, I performed analyses and made estimates regarding mental health symptoms since COVID-19 outbreak, harrowing conditions on the front lines of the pandemic, and healthcare workers (in non-AGP settings) who are in contact with patients with possible or confirmed COVID-19. The structural equation modeling technique was used to test the research model.
