Amarillo FAILS at Social Distancing Score, Check Out The Results
Social distancing is a phrase that I doubt any of us will forget. One day on a "Remember The 20s" episode of some TV series being hosted by stand-up comics, social distancing will be brought up.
I found a website that grades countries, states, and even counties on how well they're doing with social distancing. They developed the system using cellphones.
First, we'll go with some good news. Lord knows we could use it. As a state, Texas is graded with a "B." This means we're doing well-ish, as a state, when it comes to practicing social distancing.
When it comes to Randall county, we're graded with a "C." Not bad, but not great either. There's definitely room for improvement.
Potter county was graded with an "F."
That means that there has been little to no change in the amount of traveling people are doing.
They did find that the more cases an area had, the better its score got as people did practice more social distancing.
It's an interesting interactive map with a lot of interesting data to look over.
Do try and practice social distancing. If you don't have to be out in crowded places, then don't be. If you do, be mindful of your surroundings and those around you.
We'll get through this, together.
