    • 24 per cent of people somewhat agreed 
    • 9 per cent disagreed 
  • 34 per cent of people said this requirement would make them more likely to attend nightclubs or large events 
    •  7 per cent said it would make them less likely to attend  
    • 28 per cent said it would make no difference; and  
    • 31 per cent said they would not attend anyway. 

The latest Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) public engagement survey report from Public Health Wales covers the period of 27th September – 4 October 2021, when 607 people were surveyed. 

Every two weeks, Public Health Wales has conducted interviews with hundreds of people aged 18 or over across Wales, to understand how Coronavirus and the measures being used to prevent its spread are affecting the physical, mental and social wellbeing of people in Wales. Over the last 18 months, more than 24,000 Welsh residents have participated in the survey. 

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