Public knowledge and perception of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) can help shape the federal, state, and local governments’ response to the pandemic and indicate whether those strategies are effective.
RTI surveyed over 2,000 Americans in April 2020 to capture their awareness of COVID-19, their understanding of how the virus is transmitted, and their levels of support for potential community mitigation strategies. The survey was weighted to reflect the U.S. population. (Learn more about our methodology for this survey.)
In this four-part webinar series, we shared the outcomes from the RTI-funded survey and provide a detailed analysis of the implications from that data. Learn more about each webinar below.
