Fewer than half of Americans surveyed said they would "very likely" stay home for a month if a coronavirus surge in their area led public health officials to recommend another quarantine period, according to newly released survey data from Gallup.

The survey of nearly 3,000 adults, conducted Oct. 19-Nov. 1, also showed that 18% of respondents said they are "somewhat likely" to comply with a recommendations to stay home, and 33% said they are "somewhat/very unlikely" to comply.

When posed the same question in late March through early April, 67% of participants fell into the "very likely" category.

In this latest survey, 61% of people responded that they believe the situation is worsening. In April, only 40% of people said they believed this.
