Social Distancing

Once you put aside the disturbing knowledge that your every move is being tracked via your phone, an analytics company has issued social distancing scorecards.

Unacast factored in cases of COVID-19 with distance traveled and gave Illinois an “A” grade.  Locally, La Salle County’s social distance grade is a “C” with a 27 percent drop in average distance traveled since the governor’s stay at home order.  Bureau, Marshall and Putnam Counties all got “B’s” with a 30 to 40 percent drop in average distance traveled.  Grundy County got a “D” grade with just a 16 percent drop in distance traveled.

Five Illinois counties were given “F” grades.  All five are in southern Illinois.
