groups » The lived experiences of Covid-19 by front line health workers » Has your role as healthcare worker during covid times affected how people interact with you ?
Listening to the stories shared by the front line health workers during the CONNECT webinar in January it was evident that many health care workers, particularly in the early days of Covid-19 faced stigmas within their communities due to the type of work they were in.
I am wondering:
1. Firstly how widespread this experience of being stigmatized, or 'kept at a distance' by your community was for health workers in different countries, and how people coped with this?
2. Was this a decision you made to limit contact with other community members as a precaution?
3.Has your experience changed since the availability of Covid-19 vaccines have emerged?
