Consumer Sentiment Survey — May 2020
In early May, Salt Lake County staff dedicated to evaluating COVID-19's regional economic impact commissioned a Consumer Sentiment Survey, after seeing a gap in data available on the other half of the business reopening equation: consumer behavior and attitudes.
A high number of those surveyed -- 81% -- said they were more likely to visit a business if those businesses were following local health and safety guidelines. Respondents emphatically said they would feel much more or somewhat more comfortable if businesses:
- Sanitized high touch surfaces regularly
- Provided sanitizer in prominent locations
- Encouraged and maintained social distancing between customers
- Provided minimal contact and pick-up options
- Required daily symptom checks for all employee
