Abstract

Objectives: This study was conducted to examine the levels of lockdown-induced fatigue and its association with personal resilience, coping skills, and health in college students. Design and Methods: This is an online cross-sectional study involving 243 college students in the Central Philippines during the 6th month of the lockdown measure implementation. Findings: College students experience moderate levels of fatigue during the mandatory lockdown period. Increased personal resilience and coping skills were associated with lower levels of lockdown fatigue. Practice Implications: Lockdown fatigue may be addressed by formulating and implementing interventions to enhance personal resilience and coping skills among college students.
