A Surprising Number Of People Plan To Break Quarantine To See Mom On Mother’s Day
Even introverts are starting to have a tough time with the quarantine.
When holidays start to occur with everyone indoors for seemingly an endless amount of time, it makes some sense people are starting to get a little stir crazy.
However, it looks like, despite headlines across the nation of citizens growing weary of social distancing and stay-at-home orders, many plan to stay away on Mother's Day.
Zippia surveyed 500 people to see just how many folks will actually forego social distancing on Mother's Day.
The survey shows of the 500, 203 of them actually live with mom, so that makes the "seeing mom" part a bit easier.
111 people said they won't break quarantine, and 123 said they won't see mom for other reasons not stated.
Meanwhile, only 79 (15%) said they're going to see their mom on Mother's Day.
35-44 years old were the most adamant, with 22% saying they would break quarantine to see their mom on the day. That’s twice as much as 18-24-year-olds.
People between the ages of 45-54, 35% of those surveyed said they would most likely abide to the stay-at-home order and keep away from mom.
