During the first wave of the COVID-19 pandemic, over 50% of surveyed individuals in Italy reported clinically relevant levels of contamination obsessions and compulsions [@pacitti2022].
- DOCS cut-offs to indicate clinically relevant symptom levels
- Total score ≥30
- Contamination ≥9
- I was surprised that the subdomain differences were relatively small. 52% contamination, 32.5% responsibility, 29.9% unacceptable.
