COVID-19 Disruption: America’s Outlook is Complicated

It has been a year since SARS-CoV-2 started spreading globally and coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) became part of the medical lexicon. Over the past year, it has been well documented just how much the COVID-19 pandemic has impacted the lives of millions across the US as they were confronted with inconveniences such as shelter-in-place orders, face mask mandates, and travel restrictions.

To find out how Americans view this disruption and what they think of the pandemic's trajectory, Gallup recently conducted a web-based survey of 4098 US adults aged ≥18 years from January 25-January 31, 2021. Respondents are members of the Gallup Panel, a multimode Panel with approximately 100 000 members that has been collecting US adults' opinions about pressing issues since 2004.
