About The Study: In this national survey study of 1,733 U.S. adults, nearly half of participants reported misrepresentation and/or nonadherence regarding COVID-19 public health measures. The most common reasons included wanting life to feel normal and wanting to exercise personal freedom. Future work is needed to examine strategies for communicating the consequences of misrepresentation and nonadherence and to address contributing factors.
