Unacast Social Distancing Scoreboard is a tool that its developers say “enables governments, institutions, and organizations fighting the (corona)virus to understand efficacy of social distancing initiatives.”

It uses location services on cell phones to understand how people move about; it then combines location data, map data, and strategic intelligence to provide a picture of real-world human activity.

According to the Unacast scoreboard, Livingston County is doing a great job with distancing, earning an A. In fact, its score of a 54 percent change in average distance traveled earned it a silver medal in social distancing.

How did Unacast determine the score? Using the change in distance traveled from pre-COVID-19 days as a proxy, Unacast determined a “Social Distancing” score for each county.
