As Covid-19 vaccines continue to roll out across the world, how much have attitudes about going out really changed since last year? Even with the vaccinations and up-to-date safety measures that have been implemented over the last nine months, do people feel comfortable getting back to normal activities, or are they still being careful and waiting before resuming their regular activities?

Invisibly used it’s Realtime Research tool to poll 1044 Americans to find out how they feel about returning to their life activities right now during current pandemic circumstances. We then compared the results to an identical survey conducted in July 2020.

Highlights

  1. Men are much more willing than women to return to normal activities in nearly every category.
  2. Younger people are feeling more cautious than other ages about resuming regular activities.
  3. We have not made as much progress in our return to normal as  predicted by our survey back in July 2020.

Additional Highlights

  1. 55% of respondents said they would consider dining at a restaurant.
  2. 47% of respondents said they would consider going to the gym.
  3. 61% of respondents said they would consider going to the dentist.
  4. 63.5% of respondents said they would consider getting a haircut.
  5. 55% of respondents said they would return to working in an office.

Men are more willing than women to return to life before the pandemic

Results

When asked which activity they are returning to doing now that they weren’t as willing to do last year, over 63% of respondents said they were now getting haircuts compared to 51% who were willing to go out for one nine months ago. 61% of people are willing to see the dentist now, compared to only 49% in July 2020. More than half of people, 55%, were now willing to return to work in an office, and the same percentage is also willing to now visit dining establishments. The biggest jump in comparison to results from nine months ago came from people now returning to the gym with 47% saying that they now would compared to only 30% who said they would in July 2020.

We compared the results to an identical survey we sent out in July 2020 in order to gauge how people are feeling about resuming regular activities after nine months. The comparison shows that 55% of people are willing to go out to a restaurant now compared with 44% who said they would nine months ago. The number of people who said they would still wait six months or more to return to dining out again went down to 17% compared with 25% who said they would wait nine months ago.

SURVEY

47% of people are willing to go to a gym now compared with just 30% who were willing to go nine months ago. People who will still wait up to two more months to return to the gym were at 11% compared with 14% nine months ago. Those wanting to wait 3-6 months to return to the gym were at 12% compared to 14% nine months ago. People who are choosing to wait over six months to return to the gym went down to 30% compared with 43% in July 2020.

61% of people are willing to visit the dentist now compared to 49% who were willing to do it nine months ago. 12% will wait 1-2 months, 11% will wait 3-6 months, and 16% say they will wait 6+ months.

The survey revealed that compared to nine months ago, 63.5% of people are willing to go
out for a haircut; a jump from 51%. 11% plan to wait 1-2, nearly 8% plan to
wait 3-6 months, and nearly 18% plan to wait 6+ months.

When asked if they would be willing to return to working in an office, 55% said they were 
willing to do that now compared with 34% who said so nine months ago. Those wanting to wait 
another six months or more to return to working in an office went down to 24% compared
to 38% who said so in July 2020.
