Since March, we have been tracking how Saskatchewan residents have been holding up with COVID-19. Here are the latest results from November 16 to 19, 2020.
We surveyed 400 Saskatchewan residents on our consumer panel, SaskWatch Research®, each week.
With the onset of a second wave, this marks a more sombre week for residents, with all tracking metrics declining.
Self-reported mental health has softened to levels noted in the beginning weeks of the pandemic. Similarly, stress levels have been rising steadily since early September and are in line with those of late March.
Outlooks for the weeks ahead reach an all-time low.
Most residents support increased restrictions in the coming weeks, with one half strongly supporting such steps.
Most residents believe it is important to continue protecting in-person K-12 education in schools, even if it means closing other parts of the economy to do so. This sentiment is strongest among those with children under the age of 18 in the home.
Since March 23, 2020, we started sharing a few brief insights from our online community, SaskWatch Research®. As we monitor and trend the results by week, we will share the information with you as we get it.
