States Slowing Down the Most During the COVID-19 Pandemic

From Wallet Hub,  Apr 21, 2020

The coronavirus pandemic has replaced the hustle and bustle of everyday life with social distancing. Americans are discouraged, or even legally prevented, from going out except for essential errands or work. Some industries have naturally suffered from this more than others – retail and recreation visits are down 45 percent from their normal rates, while transit stations have seen a decrease of 49 percent, for example. However, the drop-off in people leaving their homes has been less pronounced in some states than others.

In order to find out which states are slowing down most during the COVID-19 pandemic, WalletHub compared the 50 states across six key metrics. Each metric measures the percentage point increase or decrease in visits to various types of places due to coronavirus. The categories are retail & recreation, grocery & pharmacy, parks, transit stations, workplaces and homes.
