Coping and adapting to crisis can be influenced by numerous factors on multiple levels. The experience during the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic is no different. This article reports on the results of a cross-sectional, online survey administered to adults living in the United States and Canada in June 2020 (N = 1,405). Hierarchical multiple regression analysis found that respondent’s age, support of family and friends, support of children’s school, use of alcohol and substances, level of trust/satisfaction with national government, being overwhelmed by the amount of COVID-related information, and level of life disruption accounted for 12% of the variance for level of self-reported coping. This study did not find that race or gender impacted self-reported coping. Discussion and implications at the micro, mezzoand macro levels are offered.
