•    39% of people said they are following the restrictions ‘completely’ (down from 47% in the last survey week), and a further 50% reported majority compliance*.
•    52% of people have been worrying ‘a little’ or ‘a lot’ about their mental health and wellbeing (down from 60% in the last survey week).

The latest Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) public engagement survey report from Public Health Wales covers the period of 30 November – 6 December, when 600 people were surveyed.

Every two weeks, Public Health Wales conducts interviews with hundreds of people aged 18 or over across Wales, to understand how Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) and the measures being used to prevent its spread are affecting the physical, mental and social wellbeing of people in Wales.

The survey is part of a raft of measures implemented by Public Health Wales to support public health and wellbeing through Coronavirus.
