Americans Say They Will Continue Precautions After COVID-19 Pandemic Eases

By Healthline - February 11, 2021
  • In a new survey, a majority of people in the United States indicated they will continue COVID-19 safety protocols, such as wearing masks and keeping physical distance, even after the pandemic eases.
  • A majority also plans to make adjustments at their place of employment.
  • Experts say the survey represents a good trend, but they note a number of people may revert to previous behaviors once they think the pandemic has ended.

Pandemic precautions are getting old, but they’re effective.

That may be why many people in the United States plan to continue them after the threat of COVID-19 eases up.

At least that’s how they felt in January when surveyed by The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center.

The national survey of more than 2,000 people found that most plan to continue with precautions such as hand hygiene, avoiding crowds, and wearing a mask in public.
