Michiganders are are getting a gold star for social distancing, according to Unacast.

The data and analytics company has launched a “Social Distancing Scoreboard” to measure how different communities are following social distancing initiatives by tracking location data.

“We created this interactive Scoreboard, updated daily, to empower organizations to measure and understand the efficacy of social distancing initiatives at the local level,” Unacast states on its website.

Michigan currently receives an “A” in social distancing, clocking a 45 percent change in average distance traveled. The United States is at a “B” for showing a 40 percent change in travel.

The top five Michigan counties, according to Unacast, are currently Luce, Livingston, Oakland, Kalamazoo and Ingham.

Oakland County recorded a 53 percent decrease in travel, with Macomb County at 51 percent and Wayne County at 44 percent.
