‘Tell us how you’re coping with coronavirus’ survey asks

PEOPLE in East Sussex are being asked to say how coronavirus has affected them in a county-wide survey.

The survey also asks what people’s priorities are for when the county begins to rebuild from the impact of Covid-19.

The findings will be used by East Sussex County Council, which has commissioned the questionnaire, to shape its recovery and reset planning for the months and years ahead.

The survey can be completed as a webchat or on social media and should take no longer than five minutes to complete.

It will complement other surveying and research about coronavirus being carried out by ESCC during 2020.

Council leader Cllr Keith Glazier said: “It’s important for us to understand the impact this terrible virus has had on the people of East Sussex: we know some have sadly paid the heaviest price and there will be many others whose lives have been turned upside down.

“Rebuilding and recovery won’t be easy but as we start that long process together it will help enormously to know about your experiences and your thoughts for the future.”

The survey runs until Sunday 29 June and can be found at https://webchat.novoville.com/?name=east_sussex_county_council_coronavirus_response
