Strathcona County COVID-19 survey results published online

In December 2020, the County invited residents to complete a survey on the COVID-19 pandemic and its impacts. The survey was open from December 4-20, 2020 through SCOOP and the County website. 

The survey asked various questions about how the pandemic has impacted residents’ mental health, activities and needs, as well as their use of County programs and services, and their perceptions of safety, stress and mental health. Residents were also provided opportunities to share their input on the quality, quantity and value of County COVID-19 information and messaging.

Overall, 63 per cent of respondents said they were satisfied or very satisfied with the County’s quality of COVID-19 messages, and 69 per cent felt the information shared was valuable. Just over 34 per cent of respondents rated their mental health as good while 39 per cent rated it as fair or poor, and 54 per cent of respondents said their recreation activities have changed since the start of the pandemic.

Data from the survey is used to inform the County’s response to COVID-19, as well as the services, supports, programs and information provided for residents and businesses during the pandemic. 

The full survey including responses can be found at strathcona.ca/covid19.
