Below is a statistical visualization of the distance a typical person moves on a daily basis per county. Results show a large reduction in the average person’s movement at the beginning of March and April. As stay-at-home orders eased in May, you can see the movement start up again in some, but not all states.
The lines represent the typical movement of a person in a county. Orange/red segments of the lines represent above normal movement by the typical person in a county. Purple/blue segments of the lines represent below normal movement by the typical person in a county. The normal movement level is displayed as a solid black horizontal line. Normal (the black line) is the typical movement of a person, before Coronavirus, for each state. The data and visualization are updated daily.
