As Americans adjust to the new normal of social distancing, it can be challenging to stay active, engaged and connected with our neighbors.

Improvenet recently surveyed 2,500 Americans from across the country to learn more about how neighbors are getting along during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Here’s what they found:

  • 69% of Americans have gotten to know their neighbors better during the pandemic and 65% have made an effort to be more friendly than usual.
  • 57% say neighbors have helped to fill the void of visiting with friends and family during the pandemic.
  • 54% say they’ve had at least one socially-distanced gathering with neighbors.
  • During the pandemic, 67% have offered help of some sort to their neighbors and 62% say they’ve received the same offer in return.
  • Top cities for neighbors socializing during the pandemic: 1. Chicago 2. Portland 3. San Diego 4. Los Angeles 5. Indianapolis.
