Additionally, collaboration between superior/principal and co-teachers, effective preventive measures, and a positive attitude when dealing with the pandemic also play an important role in reducing/coping with stress. The availability of adequate information and support from social media and schools also helped motivate the teachers in this study to deal with the outbreak.
