The Spread of the Omicron Variant
- Canadians (83%) are more likely than Americans (67%) to believe that COVID-19 vaccines are effective at ensuring that if a person gets COVID-19, they will not get sick enough to require hospitalization or suffer major complications.
- More than six-in-ten Canadians support implementing measures specifically related to vaccination status, including:
- Only allowing those who have proof of vaccination to shop in person at malls and retail outlets (excluding grocery stores), government-run liquor and cannabis stores and use public transit
- Creating separate areas in hospitals and clinics specifically for unvaccinated patients
- When asked to choose which option is closest to their opinion:
- 56% of Canadians and 39% of Americans feel that governments are making the right decision by returning to lockdowns and restrictions
- 31% of Canadians and 40% of Americans feel that governments need to leave things open and Canadians/Americans need to live with the risk posed by the virus
COVID-19 TRENDS OVER TIME
- The proportion of Canadians and Americans who think the worst of the COVID-19 crisis is behind us is trending downward.
