A recent survey found that a majority of Americans plan to attend holiday gatherings this year despite warnings about the potential of spreading COVID-19.
According to a November survey of 1,040 people by Cinch Home Services, 60.1% of those polled said they planned to attend a holiday gathering this year, with only 26.1% saying they were not planning to do so. Some 50.7% said they planned to attend Thanksgiving and 60.9% said they planned to gather for Christmas.
“Over a third of the people surveyed said they believe socializing is worth the risk of someone contracting COVID-19,” the survey authors wrote. “After months of limited contact with loved ones, it’s understandable that some might be eager to see loved ones. There have been concerns throughout the pandemic about the effects of isolation and loneliness on specific populations, particularly the elderly.”
“The COVID-19 pandemic has given people a lot of things to be concerned about, especially when it comes to socializing,” the authors also noted. “Varying opinions on appropriate precautions to take and anxiety around infection have made gathering together a lot more tense than it used to be. However, a majority of people said they still intended to see loved ones, particularly as the holidays draw near. Plus, many people reported taking a variety of precautions and agreed on the appropriateness of rules like social distancing and keeping gatherings outdoors when possible.”
