Cell Phone Data Shows if Residents Are Adhering to Quarantine

According to the World Health Organization and the CDC, social distancing is currently the most effective way to slow the spread of COVID-19. A company called Unacast created an interactive Scoreboard, updated daily, to empower organizations to measure and understand the efficacy of social distancing initiatives at the local level.

Unacast is building a future where precise and verified human mobility data helps organizations do well and do good. From driving business strategies to tracking infectious diseases, the company aligns itself to the goals of its clients for the shared benefit of the global community.

The Scoreboard grades states and parishes within in each state with letter grades from A-F based on data collected by tracking cellphone GPS data. This shows if residents are truly sheltering in place, or if they’re travel patterns indicate otherwise.
