Poll: Have you socialised with other people yet?

New polling shows that 32% of people are feeling nervous about meeting people indoors again.


ALMOST ONE-THIRD of the nation is feeling nervous about being able to meet up with people indoors as Covid-19 restrictions ease, according to new polling Red C on behalf of The Journal.

It is anticipated that bars and restaurants will be permitted to reopen for indoor services from 5 July, and that a maximum of 50 people will be permitted to attend organised indoor events at the majority of venues.

A maximum of 100 people will also be able to attend events in larger venues with strict public health measures in place.

In the meantime, current Covid-19 guidelines outline that up to six people are able to meet indoors or outdoors while maintaining a physical distance of at least two metres.

So today we’re asking: Have you socialised with other people yet?

Poll Results:

Yes, occasionally (4634)
Not yet (3719)
Yes, regularly (3005)
