STILLWATER, MN — As the number of new coronavirus cases in the United States continues to grow, how well is Washington County doing when it comes to social distancing and doing its part to flatten the curve?
A new interactive tool developed and launched Tuesday by Unacast, a New York City and Norway-based company that analyzes human mobility data, shows us exactly that. And when it comes to social distancing, Washington County earned stellar marks when it comes to the art of staying home and increasing the physical distance between yourself and others.
According to Unacast’s Social Distancing Scoreboard, Washington County received an overall grade of “A.” The scoreboard also says we’ve seen a 40 percent decrease in distance traveled by people since the coronavirus outbreak was first confirmed in the United States.
