According to the World Health Organization and the CDC, social distancing is currently the most effective way to slow the spread of COVID-19. We created this interactive Scoreboard, updated daily, to empower organizations to measure and understand the efficacy of social distancing initiatives at the local level.
Please scroll down and join the 2.2 million people (and counting) who have explored this data — the more we all understand, the more lives we can save together.
In response to learning more about behavioral responses to the virus’ spread, and having incorporated additional metrics for increased accuracy, we’ve evolved our A-F scale to continue to provide community leaders with valuable, actionable insights. Please refer to our blog for details.
Our current standard is: “essential” comprises grocery, pharmacy, and pet supplies; and “non-essential” comprises all other non-grocery retail goods and services. We recognize that the differentiation between essential and non-essential is not hard-and-fast, nor is it the same in all places, and will update this standard as we learn more.

• The Johns Hopkins Github Repository (for county-level data beginning March 22 and all state-level data)
Our data currently has a 4-day lag time to ensure that we collect and process enough data to produce an accurate picture of human mobility for any given day. Since time is of the essence in the fight against COVID-19, we are currently working to reduce this lag without compromising the quality or integrity of our insights.
