A company called Unacast has released an online scoreboard rating how well residents in various states and counties are following social distancing guidelines.

The World Heath Organization says social distancing and avoiding large gatherings are the best ways to prevent the spread of coronavirus.

To create the scorecard, Unacast says it “applied geospatial human mobility insights with its proprietary tools to create an interactive map showing mobility trends by county or by state as a way to raise awareness of and reinforce the importance of social distancing in relation to slowing the spread of COVID-19.”

Unacast developed the grading system by “using the change in distance traveled prior to COVID-19 in comparison to present day. Areas that observe at least a 40% decrease in average distance traveled are assigned a grade of A, while those that exhibit less than 10% decrease or increase are assigned an F.”

As of Monday, the country as a whole received a D, however, New York state received a grade of B – overall.

Although, local areas did not score as well, with Oneida County receiving a C, and both Herkimer and Otsego counties receiving a D – on the scorecard.
