20 US counties where people traveled most as of last week

Residents in Greenville County, S.C., traveled the most of all U.S. counties between Feb. 28 and March 27, according to an analysis from The New York Times.

The publication analyzed travel patterns in all counties with more than 500,000 residents using anonymous location data from 15 million cellphones.  

The data suggest that people in the West, Northeast and Midwest largely complied with orders to stay home to help prevent the spread of COVID-19, while residents in states like Florida — which waited to implement these orders — continued to travel.
