Seventy-six per cent of Canadians are voluntarily self-isolating to fight COVID-19, poll finds
Three-quarters of Canadians are “voluntarily self-isolating at home” due to the COVID-19 pandemic and a staggering 96 per cent believe physical distancing can slow the rate of infections, a new poll has found.
The Campaign Research study provided to the Star also suggested Canadians remain more worried about the economic impact of the virus than its health effects.
Richard Ciano, a principal of Campaign Research, said the poll indicates that people are seized by the issue and are paying attention to governments’ calls to stay home to stop the spread.
“The message appears to be getting through,” Ciano said Thursday.
