Since March 2020, we have been tracking how Saskatchewan residents have been holding up with COVID-19.
Here are the latest results from January 25 to 28, 2021.
We surveyed 400 Saskatchewan residents on our consumer panel, SaskWatch Research®, each week.
Self-reported mental health remains comparatively low and stress levels remain comparatively high.
However, fewer feel things will get worse in the weeks ahead, with most now feeling things will remain the same.
Residents feel more positive about the vaccination progress in Canada and Saskatchewan this week, although assessments of performance remain weak.
Opinions remain divided regarding future health measures, although fewer believe further restrictions should be put in place.
Opinions are also divided for both the level of penalties/fines set in place for not following public health measures, and the number of fines being handed out to individuals and businesses not following the measures.
The vast majority do not believe COVID-19 is a hoax. However, a small segment does believe it is a hoax, and one in ten are uncertain. Rural areas and younger residents are less likely to be certain that COVID-19 is not a hoax.
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.
