Results of latest public engagement survey from Public Health Wales

The results of the latest ‘How Are We Doing in Wales’ public engagement survey have been released by Public Health Wales.

The key findings are:

  • 66% of people said they are planning to either have visitors to their home or visit other people’s homes over the Christmas period (23rd-27thDecember).
  • 45% of people said they are intending to form a Christmas bubble.
  • 53% of people think the changes being made to restrictions over Christmas are about right; 31% would prefer tighter restrictions and 15% would prefer more relaxed restrictions.  
  • 39% of people said they are following the restrictions ‘completely’ (down from 47% in the last survey week), and a further 50% reported majority compliance*.
  • 52% of people have been worrying ‘a little’ or ‘a lot’ about their mental health and wellbeing (down from 60% in the last survey week).
  • 68% of people said they would want a coronavirus vaccination if one was available. 

The latest Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) public engagement survey report from Public Health Wales covers the period of 30 November – 6 December, when 600 people were surveyed.

Every two weeks, Public Health Wales conducts interviews with hundreds of people aged 18 or over across Wales, to understand how Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) and the measures being used to prevent its spread are affecting the physical, mental and social wellbeing of people in Wales.

The survey is part of a raft of measures implemented by Public Health Wales to support public health and wellbeing through Coronavirus.
