How comfortable are Brits with returning to normal after the virus crisis?

by LLB Editor

As the Government prepares to ease Britain out of lockdown on Saturday, a new poll from Ipsos MORI finds that many are still uncomfortable about some aspects of life returning to normal.

Updating its polling from mid-May reveals that three in five (60%) still say they would be uncomfortable going to a bar or restaurant (unchanged since May).

The majority of Britons would also be uncomfortable attending large public gatherings (65%), using public toilets (62%), taking holidays abroad (57%), visiting indoor cinemas or theatres (59%), using public transport (59%), or going to indoor gyms/leisure centres of swimming pools (55%).

However, there are areas where people are becoming more comfortable. Nearly seven in ten (69%) say they would be comfortable meeting friends or family outside of their household, which is up five points since mid-May.

Nearly half (49%) of parents would be comfortable sending their children to school, which is up from 38% in May. Two in five though would still be uncomfortable doing so (42%, down 8%). Just over half of workers now say they would be comfortable returning to their place of work (52%, up 5%), whilst one in three are still reticent (34%, down 4%).
