Survey on COVID-19 Business Mandates

The University of Hawaii Economic Research Organization (UHERO) in partnership with the Pacific Alliance Against COVID-19 (PAAC), the City and County of Honolulu (OneOahu), and other partners are conducting a brief 10-minute survey for business managers and owners to understand the impacts of the new COVID-19 vaccination and testing requirements on their business. In addition, responses will help us understand how the mandates are affecting business and economic outcomes, vaccination rates, and community needs.

Survey respondents will have the opportunity to win one of ten (10) x $50 gift cards. They will also be informed of the results of the survey by email. Individual responses will not be made public.
