LUBBOCK, Texas — Lubbock County was given a grade of “F” in social distancing by data company Unacast.
The company uses cell phone location data to generate a score in three categories: average mobility, non-essential visits and encounter density.
According to the data, Lubbock County had a less than 25 percent reduction in average mobility as of Wednesday, meaning people were only slightly less mobile than they were before the pandemic.
Non-essential visits in Lubbock County were only reduced by less than 55-60 percent, according to the data.
As of Wednesday, Lubbock County had a slight decrease in encounter density – or the amount of people gathered in one place at the same time – compared to before the pandemic. However, the Lubbock decrease was less than a 40 percent reduction compared to the national baseline, according to the data.
Texas was graded as a “D-” overall, while the United States as a whole was given a grade of “D”, according to the data.
Lubbock County was previously given a “C” grade in social distancing on March 30.
