UT’s been surveying Tennesseans statewide since May on dozens of COVID-19 related issues.
Among the findings: Four in ten residents are very or extremely worried about keeping their jobs. Forty percent are also concerned about being able to pay for food, medicine and other necessities.
Better than six in ten Tennesseans say they’ll probably or definitely take a coronavirus vaccine when it’s available.
Seventy-four percent say they support mask requirements. Eighteen percent oppose making masks mandatory.
The UT survey has a plus or minus three percent margin of error.
