18 states that get an A in social distancing

Unacast, a human mobility data company, developed a social distancing scoreboard as part of its COVID-19 Toolkit to grade states on how well people in each state are keeping their distance from others during the coronavirus pandemic.

The scoreboard uses its data from tracking mobile phone locations to gauge how far people in each state traveled on March 22 as compared to an average Sunday. States with at least a 40 percent drop in the distance traveled received an A, according to the Chicago Tribune.

Here are the 18 states that received an A in alphabetical order:

1. Alaska

2. California

3. Connecticut

4. Delaware

5. District of Columbia

6. Florida

7. Illinois

8. Maryland

9. Massachusetts

10. Michigan

11. Minnesota

12. Nevada

13. New Hampshire

14. New Jersey

15. New York

16. Pennsylvania
