Anxiety, Pandemics, COVID-19.


The COVID-19 Pandemic has affected all aspects of human activities as the Philippine government perceived it as a threat to public safety, which led to the implementation of a series of community quarantines nationwide, leaving the education sector one of the worst-hit by the said pandemic. The closure of schools, both temporary and permanent, need of social distancing, and home quarantine caused a sudden feeling of uneasiness among teachers and students as both were not mentally and technologically prepared for online education. With the prevalence of the COVID-19 pandemic, anxiety is becoming common nowadays for Filipino teachers and students. Most teachers and students have difficulties in using technological devices for online education and dealing with different academic workloads. A comparison between the anxiety levels of both groups will help us become aware about the effects of online classes to the academic performance of teachers and students. This study aims to compare the anxiety levels between Filipino teachers and students. In gathering the data, an online questionnaire was administered to teachers and students through purposive sampling. 51 students and 17 teachers from De La Salle Medical and Health Sciences Institute ± Special Health Sciences Senior High School participated in this study. Results of the study shown that there is a significant difference between the anxiety levels of teachers and students in terms of using technology and doing academic workloads for online education.
