We asked 2000 members of the public how their expectations around hygiene and infection control have evolved since last year. This Insight Report shares the findings, and sheds light on the importance of cleanliness when it comes to attracting customers back into your business post-lockdown.
2020 has thrown infection control into the spotlight like never before, upending the sport and fitness sector across the UK and, even in 2021, we are still seeing even fixtures in elite sports, such as the Premier League, disrupted, delayed and even postponed altogether due to infection outbreaks.
- 67.6% of sports fans would not be comfortable attending live sporting events with 7.8% suggesting a feeling that elite sports organisations do not treat infection control as a priority
- 43.2% of clubs have not reopened at all because of COVID-19 – a further 12% were unable to open specifically due to infection fears
- Four in five respondents (80.5%) said that tangible proof around a business’s infection control procedures would be reassuring
