Free Online Tools to Track the Pandemic
Are You Planning to Travel?
With the constantly developing news about the COVID-19 pandemic, it may be hard to keep track of the situation in every part of the country and assess your risk of getting infected if you have to travel.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) continues to maintain that the best way for people to stay safe is to stay at home and avoid activities that may only increase their risks of getting infected with the deadly disease.
If you are still considering traveling, the CDC advises that you check the coronavirus situation in the area you’re going to. To be able to do that effectively, you need tools to help you evaluate the risks of COVID-19 infection in the places you are headed to. Fortunately, some of our country’s leading universities have created apps that provide those tools. Not only are these apps useful, but they are also free to be accessed by all. Here are 4 of those apps:
Georgia Institute of Technology has developed an interactive map to help you weigh the risks of getting infected with COVID-19 depending on how many people attend any particular type of event. It shows you the risks in your destination and the origins of those risks. The map was developed to help officials develop local policies concerning the pandemic. However, while the map gives you an overview of the risks, it does not factor in whether guests at an event follow health protocols such as wearing masks or if the event is held outdoors.
This app from Brown University helps you calculate the risk of getting COVID-19 while factoring in the location of the event, its duration, and how many people will wear masks. However, while it gives you a good idea about your risks, it is limited to analyzing the factors for the event alone and not the behavior of the attendees before attending the event.
This app developed by the University of Colorado’s Boulder campus can evaluate your risks of contracting COVID-19 in spaces like schools, offices, and house parties. The charts, which were published in the National Geographic, allow you to adjust the variables and analyze the risks based on your specific situation if you stay in the event for an average of three hours.
The University of Oregon has developed this tool to measure COVID-19 risks based on a floor plan including the room’s ceiling height, ventilation, and filtration systems. The tool will also ask you how many people will be in a given space, for how long, and whether or not people will wear masks. However, it does not factor in the COVID-19 situation in the locality you are visiting.
