To evaluate the trust in COVID-19 information sources, respondents were asked: “Please assess the extent to which you personally trust each of the institutions listed below regarding the provided information and behavior recommendations during the state of emergency: (1) Government, (2) News media, (3) Health care system.” The response scale ranges from 1 (“I do not trust this institution at all”) to 10 (“I fully trust this institution”). As the three items were reasonably highly correlated (r = 0.55–0.66, p < 0.001), they were treated as indicators of trust in COVID-19 information sources. The scale exhibited good internal consistency in the total sample (α = 0.83), and for the Latvian (α = 0.83) and Russian versions (α = 0.81). An average score was computed to create a composite variable for further analysis.
