Survey Shows an Alarming Decrease Among Residents Following Guidelines 

An increasing number of Hawai‘i residents no longer see COVID-19 as much of a threat as they did in the earlier stages of the pandemic, according to a follow-up survey commissioned by the DOH. 

The number of people who view the virus as a “very serious” health concern has fallen from 73% to 54% in less than two months. The initial survey was conducted from April 17 to 23, and the follow-up survey was conducted from May 28 to June 7, 2020.

More alarming than the change in attitude, is its effect on prevention behaviors. While those who say they are social distancing “all of the time” has remained steady at 42%, the follow-up survey shows that fewer residents are following current recommendations “most of the time” or “part of the time.”

“It’s critically important for everyone to take COVID-19 seriously. We’ve seen a recent increase in cases. We cannot interpret the reopening of businesses, restaurants, parks and other places  as a license to let our guards down.  Indeed, it is more important now than ever to adhere to prevention measures we know work” said DOH Director Bruce Anderson. View the baseline survey results here
