July 28, 2020

After months of lockdown and quarantine, Americans are still hesitant to engage in some economic activities, according to a recent poll. The poll, from First Insight, found that while Americans largely feel comfortable in grocery stores and small retailers, 32% of people still feel unsafe or very unsafe shopping at malls. That’s an increase from the 29% of people who felt the same way in April.
