A new report from the Sacramento Bee shows that California’s unprecedented efforts to socially isolate may be working to slow the spread of COVID-19. New York technology company Unacast last week launched a “Social Distancing Scoreboard” that uses GPS data from smartphones to track people’s movement across the country.

The results show that Californians are mostly reducing their travel, although data varies greatly from region to region. Sacramento, Placer and El Dorado counties reduced travel by at least 42 percent. Other Northern California communities reduced travel even more. Napa county showed a 74 percent reduction. Rural communities in Tehama, Siskiyou and Modoc Counties increased their movement slightly.
