Invisibly is a data analytics company run by neuroscientists. Researchers polled over 1,000 people asking them to answer one question: What activity are you willing to go out and do today/right now?

Sixty-three percent said they feel safe getting a haircut. Sixty-one percent said they feel safe going to the dentist. Fifty-five percent said they were comfortable either going back to work or dining out while 47% said they would go back to the gym. The authors of the report also found men are more willing to return to these activities compared to women.
