COVID-19 Effect on Workamping Community Survey

We created a 1-question survey to Workampers and to Workamper Employers to get an idea how this pandemic has affected the Workamping & RVing community. The survey was started on 3/27/20 and distributed via social media, email, and our website to Workamper News members and non-members.  Survey ended 6/7/20.

Here are the results as of 6/7/20:
