Are you looking forward to life after the pandemic?
You would think most people would say yes, right?
That is not the case.
A new survey reveals 52-percent of Canadians are feeling anxious about returning to what life was like before the COVID-19 pandemic.
The poll was conducted by Leger and the Association for Canadian Studies through a web survey over the long weekend.
It also found those aged 18 to 24 show the highest levels of unease around post pandemic life at 68 per cent.
Leger Executive Vice-President Christian Bourque says some people may not want to return to work, while others may wonder about safety.
He points out many younger adults report feeling anxious in general, so that may be reflected in their answer about returning to a post-COVID life.
