COVID-19 Survey – May 12, 2020

Did you know that:

  • Although 96% of Canadians indicate they’ve kept a safe distance of 2 metres when in contact with people, about half (51%) report that someone outside their family has come within two metres of them.
  • 57% of Canadians are stressed about leaving their house and being in public. Americans (64%) are more stressed about this than Canadians.
  • Satisfaction with the provincial governments’ responses remains high, but is declining.
  • 39% of Canadians and 55% of Americans are not following all of the guidelines. The proportion of Canadians not following all of them has been trending upward.

These are some of the findings of Leger’s latest survey, conducted May 8-10, 2020 among 1,526 Canadians and 1,004 Americans, randomly recruited from LEO’s online panel.

Each week, Leger will publish a survey conducted in partnership with the Association for Canadian Studies (ACS) and published in The Canadian Press to help governments, businesses and citizens better understand the attitudes and behaviours of Canadians in the face of the current health and economic crisis. This series of surveys will be available on Leger’s website.
