To obtain insights into the types of resources or experts that Americans are trusting for guidance as it related to COVID-19 and to determine if pharmacies or drug stores are among them.
The two most trusted federal agencies for Americans for information and guidance relating to COVID-19 are the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) (79%) and the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS).
CDC is trusted by 79% of Americans and 80% trust HHS.
45 — 66% of Americans trust the federal government for information about COVID-19 (i.e. 56% on average).
41% of American adults trust Congress for providing them with accurate information about COVID-19.
Just below half of Americans have confidence in business leaders while 35% have confidence in elected officials.
According to the National Associations of Chain Drug Stores, Americans "trust pharmacies and pharmacists for information about medications, and about
other issues of health and wellness", especially in a time of health crisis such as H1N1. It is expected to be the same and they are making adjustments to properly provide guidance for Americans.
Pharmacists are easily accessible to at least 90% of Americans, which suggests that they'd be consulted for guidance on COVID-19 as healthcare experts, especially in community pharmacies.
