WISCONSIN — Wisconsin has earned an F grade on social distancing according to a study from Unacast.

This study which tracks how well each state is social distancing shows that Wisconsin has gotten worse at social distancing since the beginning of the Safer at Home order.

The study looks at the state's change in average mobility, change in non-essential visits, and difference in encounter density.

As of Wednesday 5/13, Wisconsin has an F overall with a D in both average mobility and non-essential visits. We have a C in encounter density.

According to the study, Wisconsin has seen less than a 25% reduction in average mobility and less than a 55% reduction in non-essential visits.

The study does not just look at the state as a whole, but they also break down states by county. All counties in Wisconsin have a C or worse except for the counties of Bayfield, Forest, Iron, Menominee, and Vilas.

Milwaukee County and surrounding counties all have F grades while the entire country is sitting at a D-.
