Description: At the beginning of 2020, most countries in the world adopted some form of mandatory measures to avoid social contacts and thus minimize the rapid spread of the number of people infected by the new SARS-COV-2. Though a necessary public health measure, evidence from previous mandatory isolation periods indicate that it has a negative impact on mental health (Hawryluck et al., 2004). Such impact may be particularly felt by individuals with high levels of social anxiety symptoms, for whom social isolation, though providing short-term relief, is a maintenance factor and associated with negative outcomes personally and professionally (Teo, Lerrigo, & Rogers, 2013). The current work intends to explore how mandatory social isolation may have influenced social anxiety in late adolescents and young adults during and after quarantine.
