I'm very worried about what this means for the South. But results will be different depending on how many cases they had when they finally took action.
This is horrifying. This is the politics of death. The decisions not to social distance were driven by politicians in these states. They all have blood on their hands.
Where America Didn’t Stay Home Even as the Virus Spread
A lot of misinterpretation of my (not well-enough contextualized) tweet on this so taking it down. Will let the map speak for itself, with link to article for greater context:
A analysis of travel patterns based on “anonymous cellphone data” from 15 million people, measuring distance travelled, vividly shows where Americans have complied with #StayHome orders, & where people kept moving. Takeaway: Florida acted too late
New: Even as coronavirus spread, millions of Americans weren't staying at home. Analysis of cellphone location data reveals that counties that haven't enacted stay-at-home orders are seeing three times the travel of ones that have
It is remarkable how, a century and a half later, the battle lines of the Civil War are still defining.
Very interesting charts, based on anonymous cellphone data. The South is so screwed. Where America Didn’t Stay Home Even as the Virus Spread
Looks like stay-at-home orders have had big effects on behavior.
Incredibly revealing graphic about when locking down really happened and where.
I have the awful feeling that this data is going to be the basis of some ID-epi PhD theses in the coming years
Guess where people haven't been practicing social distancing? 2/
Not the headline here, but people reducing travel by ~84% in states with stay-at-home orders seems good. That's a lot. Enough that we might hope to get R0 under 1 in those states (i.e. the number of new infections will start to shrink).
NYTimes feature today uses cellphone data to show where in America people are still circulating despite COVID
The good news: Stay at home orders are working. The bad news: states that delayed or failed to issue them are tomorrow’s virus vector—for the whole country.
I’m afraid for what the south is going to look like over the next few weeks.

Terrifying Florida details in this story. Buckle up
Where America Didn’t Stay Home Even as the Virus Spread
“Let’s assume that we flatten the curve, that we push transmission down in the Bay Area,” said Dr. George Rutherford, “Then, people visit from regions that have not sheltered in place, and we have another run of cases. This is going to happen.”
People in some parts of the country don’t seem to be taking this as seriously as others.
Interesting to see use mobile phone location traces from Cuebiq for measuring the onset of & compliance with distancing

Suicidal Trump cultists will take a lot of others with them.
These maps, using cell phone data, make the South look like a warning flare: Where America Didn’t Stay Home Even as the Virus Spread #COVID19
If you look at the actual story, then you'd see the Map with Atlanta metro (> 5-million population) where people are no longer driving -- or taking mass transit -- or flying out out the busiest airport in the world. We are shut down in "The South"
Power of smartphone location/mobility data for real-time evaluation of #socialdistancing policies and need for action #CoronavirusOutbreak
NYTimes, January: Your cell phone data is being shared by evil location data companies -- protect yourself!! NYTimes, April: nvm, look at these cool maps we made with our "data intelligence" partner!
Washtenaw and Macomb county with 100% decrease in mobility, Wayne (Detroit) with 99% decrease. Hopeful this will #FlattenTheCurve and enable hospital systems to operate in emergency mode without drastically exceeding capacity. Thanks !

These data are (a) fascinating and (b) likely a poor representation of what's happening (or not happening) in rural places where it's not so hard to travel a long way and maintain social distance.
#oncoalert #CCC19 Where America Didn’t Stay Home Virus Spread Stay home orders halted travel for most Americans but not Southeast/Midwest were trael continue to expose more people-LOOK AT SEATTLE!
Public shaming in the #COVID19 era
"A half-dozen of the most populous counties where residents were traveling widely last week are in Florida, where Gov. Ron DeSantis resisted calling for a statewide lockdown until Wednesday." The South is in trouble.

People in Manhattan reduced their travel almost completely by March 27. Analysis by using cellphone data .
This is what happens when you don’t have statewide stay-at-home orders. Check out #Alabama—Jefferson & Shelby counties (B’ham metro). Biggest reduction in travel. We can do better. #COVID19 Where America Didn’t Stay Home Even as the Virus Spread - NYT.

Not coincidentally, the map of selfish, low-information idiots who are ruining America by spreading a virus looks an awful lot like Trump's Electoral College map.
Fascinating analysis, showing where America didn’t stay home.
Hmm, this is like a natural experiment
There is also a lot of variation within states ...
Places not to hang out....
Which Americans didn’t stay home while #covid19 spread? In the states that that didn’t enact state-level stay-at-home orders. HT #SocialDistancing
#SocialDistanacing defined: Travel in Seattle went down from 3.8 miles to 61 feet! Other parts of the country in red not doing as well
Nice visualizations of alarming, not very nice data.

Great #dataviz from , , et al "based on anonymous cellphone data from 15 million people." My question is how does one obtain this data? Which cellphone network? Can I opt out of having my data tracked like this? CC
Stay-at-home orders have nearly halted travel for most Americans, but people in Florida, the Southeast and other places that waited to enact such orders have continued to travel widely
If Trump loses in November in a landslide, people will go back and look at this graphic and see it as a turning point.
Excellent article with interesting graphics

Avg distances traveled last Fri based on cellphone data. The South & Plains states look terrible. (Just realized that w/extensive neighborhood walking (ca 12k steps/day), I would show as moderate travel.)
2/ Always Read The Article (ARTA). Barbaro should have posted a link to it. It clearly addresses the supermarket concern.
Glad to be in MIchigan, frustrated that our president is refusing to impose social distancing elsewhere - it’s going to get much worse in terms of lives lost, unemployment and economy destroyed. #WeAreWarned
Doom serves us right, part 2 #HappyThursday
I'm furious with Fox and red state governors, for reasons shown here, but also intrigued by border effects- maybe you do less distancing if you're next to a state that isn't (e.g. people commute).

This map graphic on individual movement over the last month is stunning: talk about red states and blue states! covid-19 denial by Fox News and GOP is harming their own base
Where America Didn’t Stay Home Even as the Virus Spread < this has some good visualizations, but some of this is misleading because essentials like groceries might be around the block in an urban area, but miles away for rural areas
Others have already commented on this cool data on social distancing from NYT. Would love for it to be repeated now that mask recommendations have gone out in some states. Do more people venture out when they and others wear masks?
