Tyee Poll: How Long Will Social Distancing Measures Last?

Some studies have suggested that a single period of social distancing will not be sufficient to combat COVID-19. As many anticipate different waves of the virus, some say that social distancing may be needed for months, if not beyond the year.

So far B.C. has shown positive results as far as flattening the curve, but transmission rates, approaches to testing and measures differ by province.

The situation in Quebec and Ontario are their own distinct cases.

One opinion is that loosening the measures too quickly could leave the virus to return stronger in a second wave. How soon is too soon to relax policies? With most of Canada closing in on a month of social distancing, we want to ask:

How long do you think social distancing measures will last?
