CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas — Anxiety surrounding the spreading coronavirus is at its highest level since last winter.

A new poll shows more than 40 percent of people say they're worried they or a family member will contract the virus.

That number has doubled since June.

In the same poll, most people said they're in favor of vaccination mandates for those attending crowded events, traveling by airplane as well as for all health care workers.
