MONDAY, April 6, 2020 (HealthDay News) — Americans have gotten the message on the importance of social distancing in stemming the coronavirus pandemic, a new poll shows.
Conducted by the Associated Press-NORC Center for Public Affairs Research, the survey found that 94% of Americans say they are staying away from large groups, up from 68% six weeks ago. Eighty-six percent now say they are avoiding other people as much as possible.
Currently, half of Americans say they are extremely or very worried that they or a family member will be infected by the virus.
