Q: What Activities are Americans Willing to Resume After Receiving the COVID-19 Vaccine?

A: Priorities revolve around dining and meeting with friends and family.


In our February 22 survey, we asked respondents about their comfort levels for various activities. We found that respondents are currently most comfortable dining outdoors and visiting with family/friends in private residences. Taking public transportation, attending indoor gatherings, and events with large crowds remain at the bottom of the list.


Given the current vaccine rollout, we asked how comfortable respondents would be in the same activities had they received a COVID-19 vaccine. These results reveal similar findings; however, we observe a significant increase in comfort levels across all activities, especially gathering with friends and family, dining outdoors, and visiting hair salons.
