More Customers Support Businesses Following Safety Guidelines

A majority of US customers (59%) say they are likelier to support local businesses which follow Covid-19 safety guidelines. 75% support states implementing legislation that give businesses the legal right to refuse to serve non-social distancing abiding customers. 61% of consumers believe practicing social distancing should be a legal requirement for businesses.

These were the findings of a new national survey by Consumer Reports (CR). The CR American Experiences Survey was carried out between June 4 to 16, prior to the current viral surge.
