Less Than Half Of Canadians Are Down To Fly And Party With Unvaccinated People

A new survey has revealed Canadians' comfort levels with different activities.

A new Leger survey has revealed how Canadians feel about socializing with unvaccinated people in a variety of different settings.

Canadian respondents who normally participate in certain activities were asked how comfortable they feel doing each activity knowing that unvaccinated people may be present.

Only 48% of Canadian respondents said they would feel comfortable going to in-person classes with unvaccinated people; 47% said they'd be comfortable going to a spa or beauty salon, and 45% said they'd be comfortable going to a cinema or theatre.

Even fewer respondents, 41%, said that they would be comfortable attending indoor shows or sporting events.

Meanwhile, 40% said they'd be comfortable using public transport; 38% said they'd be comfortable going to the gym; 37% said they'd be comfortable flying on a plane, and 32% said they'd be comfortable going to a bar or nightclub knowing that unvaccinated people could be there.

In each of those categories, American respondents were more comfortable than Canadian respondents with participating in the activity.
