As testing for COVID-19 becomes more widely available, our insights team has been in close contact with people across the country. What we’re hearing is that the pandemic has been hitting much closer to home with each day that passes. Here are a few updates:

  • 18% have a friend, work colleague or acquaintance who has tested positive for COVID-19 (which is a 5% increase from just one week earlier)
  • 8% of respondents have been tested (increase from 3% in 3/14/20 pulse)
  • 21% of their immediate and extended family have been tested (increase from 10% in 3/14/20 pulse)
  • 29% have a friend, work colleague or acquaintance who has been tested (increase from 19% in 3/14/20 pulse)

We’ve put together an infographic that includes even more details from our ongoing survey – check it out and contact us if you’d like to talk about we help you engage with specific groups of people around their health experiences.
