Evidently there is a lot of trepidation, with 30% of respondents saying they wouldn’t feel safe doing any of the activities listed.
Restaurants have been hard hit by the pandemic, particularly independent ones entirely reliant on sit-in diners. As restaurants reopen, based on our survey results, those with outside seats are going to fare far better than their indoor-only counterparts. While 36% of people feel safe dining outside, it’s just 26% for doing so inside.
Bars are even worse hit, with only 22% of people saying they feel safe visiting them. Meanwhile, the holiday and tourism industry is facing, as expected, an uphill struggle. Just 21% of respondents feel safe going to a hotel, while only 15% said the same about getting on a plane.
