Restaurants post‑COVID‑19

New survey on COVID-19 suggests 52% of Canadians intend to avoid restaurants for the foreseeable future.

A recent survey conducted by Angus Reid shows that as provinces loosen regulations in the coming weeks to allow restaurants and other food service establishments to open, many people wonder whether Canadians will return to businesses that have been all but abandoned for three months. A total of 1,505 Canadians were surveyed in early June and asked if they had been ordering food from restaurants during the pandemic, and if they intended to return to their old habits afterwards.
