There’s no question that COVID-19 poses a serious health risk for those who test positive for the virus. However, we’re starting to see evidence that its health impact extends beyond the virus itself. Research shows that social isolation – especially among older adults and teenagers – is causing an increased level of stress, depression and anxiety. K-State Research and Extension adult development and aging specialist Erin Yelland and Extension youth development specialist Elaine Johannes explain how these two age groups can help one another by finding creative ways to stay connected.
