Study Shows Texas Is the State 11th Most Slowed Down by COVID-19
The COVID-19 pandemic has prompted states in the nation to react by limiting non-essential travel and businesses, restricting social gatherings, and prohibiting dine-in eating at restaurants. Many businesses have slowed to a crawl compared to the normal pace of their operations leaving them feeling worried and anxious over when the restrictive orders might begin to ease.
A new study released by the personal-finance website WalletHub analyzed data to determine the States Slowing Down the Most During the COVID-19 Pandemic.
Texas Ranks 11th out of 50
According to WalletHub, in order to determine which states have slowed down the most during the pandemic they "used Google data to compare 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 types of places are retail and recreation, homes, workplaces, parks, grocery and pharmacy, and transit stations.
