This survey dataset examines COVID-19-related knowledge, attitudes, and adoption of prevention behaviors among Connecticut residents in the U.S. The survey was conducted anonymously among non-random sample of 464 Connecticut residents in the early stage of social distancing and shutdown from March 23 to March 29, 2020. The questionnaires were developed by using Qualtrics software. Participants were purposively recruited. Participants could choose a hyperlink for self-administration of the survey online or were interviewed over the phone or other means of communication and record their answers online. Data was transferred from Qualtrics to SPSS Version 26.0 for analysis. Data were analyzed using frequencies, percentages, means, and standard deviations.
