Pamplin Media Group – Poll: Working, learning from home to linger in Oregon

Statewide polling by the Oregon Values and Beliefs Center asks about lasting effects of pandemic on Oregon.


The novel coronavirus has upended nearly every facet of modern life over the past year — but will those changes stick?

Many Oregonians predict that online shopping and working from home are here to stay; virtual schooling and high unemployment, on the other hand, are expected to linger temporarily. And the permanence of other virus-spurred alterations in society, such as the rise of telemedicine, leave Oregon divided.

OVBC, in partnership with DHM Research, conducted the survey of 900 Oregon residents — selected to be demographically representative of the state — in late February and early March. The margin of error ranges from 2% to 3.3% per question.

Cardboard box prices skyrocket as COVID-19 pandemic causes spike in online orders

The value of the humble cardboard box is on the rise, with demand for deliveries and online shopping not slowing down as the coronavirus pandemic nears an end.

Materials needed to make cardboard boxes, called corrugate, cannot be produced quickly enough, and facilities like Welch Packaging in Elkart, Indiana are feeling the impact of triple the work and not enough supplies.

“We’re operating three shifts, full time,” Welch Packing Vice President Andy Reith told FOX Business’ Jeff Flock. “And we run about eight million square feet every day.”

In 2020 alone, the industry produced more than 407 billion square feet of corrugated material due to heightened demand – enough to completely cover the states of Connecticut and New Jersey.
