The Vineyard Gazette is conducting an online survey to gain insight about how full-time and seasonal residents and visitors are thinking about their summer plans in light of the coronavirus pandemic.

Part of the newspaper’s community surveys project, the short questionnaire is open to anyone who lives on or regularly visits Martha’s Vineyard. Respondents are free to pass the survey link to others, but there is a mechanism in place to prevent more than one response from the same computer.

The community surveys project is an effort to stimulate debate around topics of community interest; results are not statistically significant. Previous surveys have focused on attitudes about summer traffic, the Steamship Authority, ticks and tick-borne illness and mopeds.

Individual responses to the survey will be kept anonymous. Overall results and a sampling of comments will be published in a future issue of the Gazette and on
