Abstract

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