Acoustic Comfort in Condominiums and Apartments during COVID-19

University of Toronto, Department of Civil and Mineral Engineering

Due to the COVID-19 lockdown, noise conditions inside condos and apartment buildings have changed since many are staying at home. Noise conditions outside buildings have also changed due to changes in outdoor activities. We are studying the effects of COVID-19 lockdown and the resulting changes in noise conditions on acoustic comfort in condos and apartments. If you currently live in a condo or apartment in Canada, please consider participating in our 10-minute survey. You must be at least 18 years of age to participate in this survey. Those who complete the survey will be entered in a draw for five $50 Amazon gift cards.
