The impacts of the Covid-19 epidemic on workers are multi-faceted and besides complex health concerns
have also involved economic strain, forced or voluntary isolation, changed working conditions with need for distance work for many and uncertainty regarding the future. Here we look at older workers aged 50+ in the Baltic Sea Region (BSR) and the economic and mental strains during the Covid-19 epidemic. We discern great differences between BSR countries and provide some policy implications based on our analysis.
