The Openpath Social Distancing Index (SDI) is based on our real time reporting. The graphs below depict consumer access control usage beginning the week of February 24th, 2020*, when all states were operating at 100%.
Openpath’s cloud managed platform illustrates anonymized, national building access logs, by state and by industry, indicating how the nation reacts to the COVID-19 outbreak and social distancing protocol. As government administrations begin relaxing stay-at-home orders, which states and industries are beginning to normalize and at what rate?
The data included in this analysis is proprietary to Openpath Security, Inc and was derived from Openpath’s technology platform. All customer data has been anonymized and is presented strictly for informational purposes. No information is shared or sold to third party vendors. The analyses are based on records logged as part of the normal operations of Openpath's physical access control services, of approximately 5 million unlocks from over 1600 unique organizations, ongoing as of 2/24/2020*, and distributed nationally across 44 states (all except Alaska, Hawaii, West Virginia, New Mexico, Rhode Island, Wyoming) and Washington, D.C. We are continuously increasing our data pool to provide a deeper picture across the US, which will be reflected in updated percentage ratios.
Data is updated every Monday with the previous week's results. We will continue to share this information as long as it helps inform decision makers and individuals on the impact of social distancing.
