So what is expectation?
67% of people expect to have all participants and moderators fully vaccinated should they be attending a group research session. This remained unchanged between the two waves, proving consistent across all demographics.
Despite the similarities in the vaccination preferences, we did see a significant decrease in expectations around moderator and participant face mask usage. In early October, 59% of respondents expected masks be worn, with a drop to 46% in the late October sample.
Overall, it would seem a certain level of a return to normal is expected, however it looks like a new normal will need to be embraced by the research community to ensure we can access the insights of all Australians.
