Bloomberg: Americans Stayed Inside Even as Cities and States Reopened

Bloomberg: Americans Stayed Inside Even as Cities and States Reopened. “By the latter half of August, 130 million Americans said they avoided eating at restaurants, a new U.S. Census Bureau survey analyzed by Bloomberg News shows. Only about 21 million of the nearly 250 million people had resumed dining out, according to the data gathered in collaboration with multiple federal agencies. Asked if they were still making fewer trips to stores in late August than before the pandemic, 70% said ‘yes.’ Even among the youngest adults aged 18 to 24, 68% said they were shopping less.”
