A majority of Americans say they are afraid of catching coronavirus, according to a new poll.

An ABC News/Ipsos poll released Friday shows an increase in people fearful getting sick from the virus as several states report an uptick in cases.

Poll results show:

  • 76% of Americans say they are concerned with getting sick from the virus, which is up from 69% who said they were fearful in the same survey conducted on June 12.
  • 56% of Americans say they feel the U.S. is reopening too quickly.
  • 87% of Americans say they have worn a face mask when leaving their home in the past week.

Despite an increase in fear, 93% of Americans say they are still comfortable grocery shopping while wearing a mask and 79% say they are OK with going to work.

People are less likely to eat out at a restaurant or stay at a hotel. Fifty-six percent of Americans say they would dine out and 53% say they would check into a hotel. Americans are not likely to hit the gym with 28% reporting they would work out at a health club or fitness center. 

The poll surveyed 579 adults between June 24-25. The poll has a margin of error of plus or minus 4.7 percentage points.
