Abstract

The COVID-19 pandemic has threatened personal health—physical, social, and mental. Pandemic-related frustration persists as global health, the economy, and personal wellbeing continue to be jeopardized (Karim & Karim, 2021). The SARS-CoV-2 variant Omicron is thought to spread more quickly and to evade antibody neutralization more easily than prior variants, increasing the likelihood of reinfection (Callaway & Ledford, 2021). Vaccinations have provided some protection against COVID-19; however, their effectiveness is debatable because the severity and transmissibility of this variant remain unknown (Dolgin, 2021). Controlling the pandemic has also become increasingly complex as variants circulate (He et al., 2021). Most places are imposing control measures until the pandemic ends, given that mobility accelerates the spread of COVID-19 (Nouvellet et al., 2021).
