COVID-19 Consumer Survey on Re-Opening

May 2020

Alton Main Street, RiverBend Growth Association and the Great Rivers & Routes Tourism Bureau recently partnered on a consumer survey to measure attitudes and anticipated behaviors or desires of local residents as the region enters the recovery/re-opening process from the COVID-19 shelter in place orders.  The survey was open from May 13 through May 20, 2020 for one week, and gathered more than 2,300 responses.  The questions and summary data are presented on the following pages.  

The intent of this survey was to provide additional direction to help small business owners determine best paths forward on re-opening their businesses in a way that is responsible and safe.  

These three organizations will continue to serve as a resource to our small business community, connecting them to additional guidelines, opportunities and with each other.  If you would like a full copy of the raw data, you can contact any of the three organizations.  We wish everyone a safe entry into Phase 3 in Illinois.
