Designing pandemic resilient cities: Exploring the impacts of the built environment on infection risk perception and subjective well-being
The COVID-19 pandemic changed mobility behavior substantially, particularly because of the perceived risk of exposure to coronavirus and the restrictions implemented to slow down the spread of the disease. These fundamental changes started many discussions regarding the effects of built environment characteristics on the spread of the disease, out-of-home activity behavior, and mental and physical health. This study analyzes the associations between the built environment, subjective well-being, and COVID-19 infection risk perception while walking, bicycling, and using bike-sharing/scooter-sharing.
