New Study Finds Majority of Americans Would Support Another Stay-at-Home Order Given Second Wave of COVID-19 in Fall or Winter 2020
GALE has released its latest study, "Reopening Attitudes Report," in the wake of economies reopening across the United States. In it, GALE reveals how Americans are feeling about reopening the economy, and sheds light on behaviors and attitudes across generations and genders regarding travel, retail, finance, gaming, childcare, sports, entertainment, and more, as well as how those sentiments might carry over to the post-isolation "new normal." The most recorded emotion across respondents about reopening was "cautious" (66%); unsurprisingly, Boomers with preexisting conditions (e.g. health risk factors such as heart conditions, immunocompromised, asthmatic, etc.) were the most cautious group (72%).

A Second Wave
Travel Plans Still in Flux, But 2020 Could See a Road-Trip Resurgence
GALE conducted this study with responses from 900 Americans 18+. Responses were collected in June 2020 and include U.S. consumer sentiments on various topics such as post-COVID lifestyle changes, travel plans, childcare arrangements, emotions around businesses reopening, and more. This study touches on many verticals, including retail, finance, gaming, childcare, sports, entertainment, and more.
