investigate whether social determinants of health (SDOH) are predictive
of adherence to public health preventive measures and to describe
changes in adherence over time among parents and children. A
longitudinal study was conducted in children aged 0–10 years and their
parents through the TARGet Kids! COVID-19 Study in the Greater Toronto
Area, Canada (April–July 2020). This study included 335 parents (2108
observations) and 416 children (2632 observations).

The effectiveness of public health interventions for mitigation of the COVID-19 pandemic depends on individual
attitudes, compliance, and the level of support available to allow for compliance with these measures. The aim of this study was to
describe attitudes and behaviours towards the Canadian COVID-19 public health response, and identify risk-modifying behaviours based on socio-demographic characteristics.
A cross-sectional online survey was administered in May 2020 to members of a paid panel representative of the
Canadian population by age, gender, official language, and region of residence. A total of 4981 respondents provided responses
for indicators of self-reported risk perceptions, attitudes, and behaviours towards COVID-19 public health measures

Coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID‐19) is a global health problem that can result in serious complications. The aim of this study was to investigate the prevalence and clinical importance of vitamin D deficiency in children with COVID‐19.This study includes 40 patients who were diagnosed to have COVID‐19 and hospitalized with the real‐time reverse transcription polymerase chain reaction method, 45 healthy matched control subjects with vitamin D levels. The age of admission, clinical and laboratory data, and 25‐hydroxycholecalciferol (25‐OHD) levels were recorded. Those with vitamin D levels which are below 20 ng/ml were determined as Group 1 and those with ≥20 ng/ml as Group 2.

Mathematical modeling studies have suggested that pre-emptive school closures alone have little overall impact on SARS-CoV-2 transmission, but reopening schools in the background of community contact reduction presents a unique scenario that has not been fully assessed. This study adapted a previously published model using contact information from Shanghai to model school reopening under various conditions. It investigated different strategies by combining the contact patterns observed between different age groups during both baseline and “lockdown” periods. It also tested the robustness of this strategy to the assumption of lower susceptibility to infection in children under age 15 years.
