Unacast uses data from cell phones to create a Social Distancing Scoreboard. Unacast figures out the scoreboard by tracking cellphones to see how much we are traveling now compared to before the COVID-19 pandemic.

Unacast gives each state a letter grade from A-F. The website constantly updates. Last week New York received a C- grade, on Tuesday, New York was given a D+ grade and that grade was downgraded to a D- by Wednesday.
