They surveyed 3,000 American workers and found that beer is the most popular alcohol during self isolation, one in three is more likely to drink during isolation, and one fifth stockpiled alcohol for isolation.
In Pennsylvania, 38% are drinking while working, in New York, it’s also 38%, but in Delaware, only 15% are boozing during work hours. In the rest of the country, the numbers range from 8% in Arkansas to 67% in Hawaii(!). Next time you’re on a Zoom meeting, keep in mind at least three of the other people have probably been drinking.
