The resurgence of COVID-19 cases amid the delta strain has forced businesses across the US to revisit their policies on masking and vaccinations. This report delves into people’s opinions and their comfort with these ongoing developments.

The vaccination debate has again reared its head in America as the country sees another wave of COVID-19 infections, just months after things had seemingly come back to normal. Unlike before, when only the government pushed through with advisories, corporate America now seems to be getting serious about it. Major US companies including Disney, Walmart, Apple, and Google have begun making masks and vaccines mandatory for their employees. Even some private businesses like restaurants and bars have started asking for proof of vaccination from patrons wanting to dine indoors. With the delta strain threatening to disrupt lives again, how comfortable are Americans with the ongoing changes and uncertainties? Piplsay polled 30,830 Americans to get some insights.
