Popis Exclusion from social relations in old age is a situation in which people are socially and emotionally disconnected from adequate levels of intimate relationships, social networks, social support and/or social opportunities, with gender being both a cross-cutting and an overarching factor influencing the experience of social exclusion from relations in older age. It is a broader concept that includes feelings of loneliness and has significant negative impacts on health and quality of life in old age. The measures implemented in the context of COVID-19 have meant a significant reduction or even interruption of personal contacts. While these measures have only had significant negative impacts for some older men and women, others have found creative compensatory strategies to mitigate the consequences. In this presentation, I analyse the effects of the measures on seniors' risk of exclusion from social relations using two data sources from the Czech Republic. The results show considerable variability in the impact of the interventions depending on the agency of older men and women and their capacity and ability to find coping strategies that are appropriate for them. The difficulty of the situation of the socially excluded older adults was exacerbated.
