Abstract

The COVID-19 pandemic has severely impacted communities around the world, forcing health systems to make decisions about how to prioritise care, manage infection control, and maintain reserve capacity for future disease outbreaks (Reed, 2020). One health care consequence associated with the pandemic has been people’s avoidance of contact with healthcare settings, whether out of fear of contracting COVID-19, as a means of reducing pressure on the healthcare system (Mareiniss, 2020), or because of the increased financial stress caused by the pandemic (Zhang, Liu, & Scott, 2020).
