While the majority of the indicators in CivicScience’s ongoing COVID Comfort Index have risen and fallen dramatically over the past six months as public attitudes shift, there’s been one major exception: working. Since the beginning of October, the percentage of Americans comfortable with working in person has stayed remarkably flat, going no higher than 69% and no lower than 61%. For comparison, Americans’ comfort with attending concerts has swung from 38% in January to 58% now.
Will one-third of the U.S. workforce remain wary of returning to the office indefinitely? If what’s past is prologue, it could be possible. Overall, the COVID Comfort Index showed little movement week over week, declining slightly from 64.5 to 64.2. Check out our COVID Check-In infographic for more details.
