Regional Differences of Personal Protective Measures during COVID-19 Overtime

Abstract
The Tourism Crisis Management Initiative launched a survey in January 2020, before the first case of COVID-19 was confirmed in the United States. The goal was to understand the impacts of COVID-19 on the travel industry. This portion of is focused on providing a holistic view of the American tourist by analyzing demographic and geographic factors, travel anxiety, use of personal protective measures, and intention to travel. Through statistical analysis these relationships will be analyzed over 3 waves of surveys spanning 6 months, to account for change overtime. A three-item anxiety scale was developed to measure anxiety through feelings and can be utilized in future crises. There were seven personal protective measures considered in the survey. Business and leisure travel were both assessed in the intention to travel variable. The results from this study will inform crisis management decisions and lay the foundation for future research in this area.
