Coronavirus Opinion Poll Results
The Marin Post "Coronavirus Opinion Survey” was taken by several hundred people. Though a small statistical sampling, the results showed some interesting results. Some of the findings were as follows:
Corresponding to available statistics about Marin, the number of cases people were personally aware of someone with the virus was relatively small. People were also mostly in the middle in terms of optimism and pessimism about the situation. However, most believe our situation will last for several more months.

But opinions were mixed about the right way to slow the spread of the virus and their feelings about the financial impacts of shutting down the economy.
On the question about shutting things down, which offered an "other" option, write-ins were all over the map, from "this is a dumb question" to "I have no idea whatsoever" but the majority expressed sincere concern.
