Coronavirus has had a big impact on how we all live, work, travel and interact. To understand the local impact, Portsmouth City Council asked residents to tell them how they have been affected. Over 2800 residents took part in the survey and shared their experiences of the pandemic.
Among the findings, PCC learnt the vast majority are following coronavirus rules and most are confident in the way local public services are handling the pandemic. The biggest worries are friends or family catching coronavirus and others not following the rules. For around a third of people, household finances have been negatively impacted. However, others reported positive changes to their lifestyle such as spending less time travelling and using technology more to keep in touch with loved ones.
If you took part in the survey, thank you for taking the time to tell PCC how coronavirus has affected you and your family. The results of the survey will help shape how they work with other organisations, residents and communities to keep Portsmouth safe and help the city plan for the future.
