The rise of the COVID-19 delta variant is influencing 44% of U.S. employees’ willingness to return to workplaces, with 55% reporting the variant has increased their concern of contracting COVID, according to a survey by Eagle Hill Consulting.

Additionally, the poll showed a majority of workers support employers putting in place COVID-19 safety protocols and testing.

Temperature checks and testing saw less support, with just 67% and 61%, respectively, thinking employers should require or encourage such measures.
