People are still nervous about going out to pubs and restaurants while a big majority of people are uncomfortable about taking an international trip either by plane or ferry. 

These are just some of the findings in the latest survey on the social impact of Covid-19 by the Central Statistics Office. The survey was carried out between 10-17 June. 

It found that 57% of people surveyed feel either "uncomfortable" or "very uncomfortable" with going to pubs, even with two metre social distancing. That percentage rises to 67% when social distancing is reduced to one metre.  

The figure for restaurants is slightly lower at 41%, but rises to 55.8% when social distancing is reduced to a metre. 

82% of people said they would feel uncomfortable or very uncomfortable at an outdoor event with a large crowd and no social distancing.  

Religious services are more mixed. 47.6% would feel uncomfortable or very uncomfortable even with social distancing in a place of worship while 37.2% would feel comfortable or very comfortable.  

The same is true for hairdressers. 47.3% of women would feel comfortable or very comfortable attending a hairdresser, while for men it is 34.9%.  



Meanwhile, 67.7% of women are uncomfortable or very uncomfortable with their children attending a crèche - the figure for men is 39.2%. 

When it comes to public transport, 63.3% of those surveyed said they would be uncomfortable or very uncomfortable with travelling, even with social distancing. 

Today's CSO research also revealed that 78% of those surveyed said they are uncomfortable or very uncomfortable with flying abroad.  

Only 13.5% say they would be comfortable or very comfortable with the prospect. 

The percentage of people who are uncomfortable or very uncomfortable with an international trip by ferry is slightly lower at 63.3%.
