paper highlights how the novel coronavirus pandemic (COVID-19) has
amplified economic instability and health risks for disconnected youth
and young adults (YYA). We offer a brief review of governmental policy
responses in four OECD countries and how they may impact the disconnect
YYA within those countries. Literature
was reviewed utilizing Cochrane Library, ERIC, PsychINFO,
PubMed/MEDLINE and Web of Science to outline existing inequities among
disconnected YYA and COVID-19 economic and health impacts. Government
responses to COVID-19 from four OECD countries were reviewed. Using the
social protection model, we highlighted significant policy changes and
developments that influence the protection of vulnerable populations and
evaluated the potential effect of long-term economic dislocations
prompted by the COVID-19 pandemic.

Previous research has established an association between pandemic fears and the development of obsessive-compulsive symptoms mainly in the general population. This study aims to explore whether COVID-19 pandemic fears are associated with obsessive-compulsive symptoms and vice versa in adolescents with preexisting mental and behavioural disorders.

Top public health experts and organizations strongly recommend universal masking for children older than 2 years old during the COVID-19 pandemic, but speculate it may be difficult for young children. This study sought to assess the usage of cloth face masks in grades pre-K-2 and identify associated characteristics and adverse events. It is the first data to assess mask wearing by young children in school. This online, prospective, observational, survey in multiple schools within a single school district in a major metropolitan area measured adherence to face covering mandates by students in grades pre-K-2 as measured by percentage of day with appropriate face mask wearing per report via daily teacher surveys for the first 4 weeks of school.

This study examines whether there has been an increase in young adolescent and maternal mental health problems from pre- to post-onset of the COVID-19 pandemic. Children aged 11–12 years and their mothers participating in a UK population-based birth cohort (Wirral Child Health and Development Study) provided mental health data between December 2019 and March 2020, and again 3 months after lockdown, 89% (N = 202) of 226 assessed pre-COVID-19. Emotional and behavioural problems were assessed by self- and maternal reports, and long-term vulnerability by maternal report of prior child adjustment, and maternal prenatal depression.
