    Objective: To explore the impact of COVID-19 on the sleep of healthcare workers from Fujian Province supporting Hubei Province and its related risk factors.
    Methods: A cross-sectional, anonymous, self-reported online questionnaire survey was conducted among all participants. The questionnaire consisted of five parts: sociodemographic characteristics and COVID-19 epidemic-related factors, Pittsburgh Sleep Quality Index (PSQI), Epworth Sleepiness Scale (ESS), Morningness-Eveningness Questionnaire-5 (MEQ-5), and 12-item General Health Questionnaire (GHQ-12).
    Results: Among 552 participants, 203 (36.8%) had a PSQI score > 7, indicating the presence of sleep disorders. Logistic regression analysis revealed that sleep disorders were independently associated with a history of previously diagnosed sleep disorders (OR 6.074, 95% CI 2.626-14.049, P<0.001), rotating night shifts > 3 times per week (OR 3.089, 95% CI 1.650-5.781, P<0.001), using electronic devices before sleep >1 hour (OR 1.685, 95% CI 1.131-2.511, P=0.010), concern about contracting COVID-19 (OR 1.116, 95% CI 1.034-1.204, P=0.005), perception of societal support for supporting healthcare workers in Hubei (OR 0.861,95% CI 0.744–0.998, P=0.047) (OR 0.861, 95% CI 0.744-0.998, P=0.047), non-medical staff (OR 0.257, 95% CI 0.067-0.987, P = 0.048), ESS score (OR 1.068, 95% CI 1.018-1.121, P= 0.007), and GHQ-12 score (OR 1.511, 95% CI 1.281-1.782, P< 0.001).
    Conclusion: Sleep disorders were highly prevalent among healthcare workers from Fujian Province supporting Hubei Province during the COVID-19 pandemic. Risk factors for sleep disorders included a history of previously diagnosed sleep disorders, rotating night shifts > 3 times per week, using electronic devices before sleep >1 hour, excessive concern about contracting COVID-19, and poorer psychological health. Higher perceived societal support and understanding of support for healthcare workers supporting Hubei were associated with a reduced risk of sleep disorders, as was being non-medical staff. Providing more sleep hygiene education and psychological health services for frontline healthcare workers is necessary.
