COVID-19 Effect on Workamping Community Survey

We created a 1-question survey to Workampers and to Workamper Employers to get an idea how this pandemic has affected the Workamping & RVing community. The survey was started on 3/27/20 and distributed via social media, email, and our website to Workamper News members and non-members.  Survey ended 6/7/20.

Here are the results as of 6/7/20:

Note: With any of the options that indicate the operation is open or will be opening, it should be assumed that the operation has altered their standard operating procedures and/or revised the services/activities that are normally offered based on recommendations and guidelines set forth by the CDC, federal and state gov't, etc. to best protect the owners, staff, and customers.
