A majority of Americans (54%) report having gone out to eat over the past week, according to the latest installment of the Axios-Ipsos Coronavirus Index, marking the first time in more than a year that more than half of respondents have reported doing so. A decreasing share of respondents (43%) believe returning to “normal pre-coronavirus life” poses a large or moderate risk to their health and well-being. Respondents are also more likely than in previous surveys to perceive certain activities such as indoor dining, in-person gatherings, shopping, vacationing and going to salons or barbershops as carrying only a small risk to their health.
