For this dashboard we dug into an April 25th, 2020 Washington Post article about COVID-19 hotspots at US meat processing plants. Using data from our partners at X-Mode and Safegraph, we analyze activity at these plants as well as the COVID-19 infections in nearby communities. Finally, we trace activity from one plant to identify potential virus hotspots in nearby locations. X-Mode’s dataset used in this research is aggregated and generalized. X-Mode does not collect or share any personally identifiable information such as name, email, or phone number. All devices have given consent to location collection.
