Since March 2020, we have been tracking how Saskatchewan residents have been holding up with COVID-19.
Here are the latest results from January 11-14, 2021.
We surveyed 400 Saskatchewan residents on our consumer panel, SaskWatch Research®, each week.
Self-reported mental health softens slightly this week amid rising case counts in the province, and stress levels remain high.
Aligning with rising case counts, outlook for the weeks ahead becomes less optimistic.
Tied to stress and outlook levels, residents are displeased with the pace at which vaccines are being administered within Canada as a whole and the province specifically. However, most agree the priority order of who is getting vaccinated makes sense.
Opinions are very much divided regarding future public health measures, with nearly equal proportions feeling they should be loosened, tightened or remain unchanged. Older residents are more in favour of keeping current restrictions in place while younger and middle-aged residents are more likely to want to loosen things up.
Snowbirds are largely planning to stay put this winter.
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.
