Every state has some sort of shelter-in-place order.
Do we support such restrictions?
In March, Americans were more worried about the disruptions caused by COVID-19 than about catching the virus. Since then, worry about the virus has increased substantially.
At the same time, worry about disruptions has declined somewhat.
There is broad support for keeping businesses closed, with 75 percent agreeing we should force non-essential businesses to close. This support has increased over time.
There is also broad support for quarantine and shelter-in-place orders, with support increasing over time.
Americans are also increasingly supportive of severe restrictions, such as criminal penalties for individuals who violate quarantine.
