Objective: Coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) has been declared a pandemic by the World Health Organization. Many studies have examined their psychological effects. However, during these periods when the new case of COVID-19 patients decreased, their psychological effects were not sufficiently reported. Our aim was to investigate the anxiety and depressive symptom levels of healthcare workers (HCW) during the periods when the increase in the number of cases slowed down in the COVID-19 epidemic.
