The new poll found:
- 58% of Americans are either completely or mostly in isolation.
- 17% said they completely isolate themselves.
- 41% said they mostly isolate themselves.
- That 58% is a drop from the 75% who said they were completely isolating themselves between March 30 and April 4 and the 68% who said the same from April 20 to April 26.
“The steady decline returns the numbers back to the level before the majority of states implemented stay-at-home orders in March to stop the spread of the coronavirus,” according to USA Today.
Interestingly, the drop is not just in states where there have been soft reopenings. According to USA Today, more people in states with stay-at-home orders are stopping their social distancing habits, too.
“It’s certainly in those states, but it’s also in the states that aren’t loosening their restrictions as well,” Jeffrey Jones, senior editor for the Gallup Poll, told USA Today.
