Poll Finds Most Americans Will Avoid Live Sports, Concerts

A new poll suggests most Americans will be skipping concerts and live sporting events, even after the coronavirus lockdown is lifted. According to a Reuters-Ipsos poll released Tuesday, 55 percent of people say concerts and movie theaters shouldn’t open up until a vaccine is ready. About 40 percent said they’d be willing to go out without a vaccine. The numbers were even smaller for live sporting events – only 17 percent said they’d be willing to attend one without a vaccine, while nearly 60 percent supported games being played without a live crowd.

Where do you stand on concerts or sporting events? Would you be willing to wait a year or more? Or do you plan on going out as soon as it’s possible?
