Boston University: Tracking COVID-19 Policies

Boston University, launched in April, finally found via Reddit (I must work on my Google Alerts): Tracking COVID-19 Policies. “Many Americans have been sheltering in place for days or weeks, working or studying from home or newly unemployed. Some states have closed schools, gyms, and nonessential business. Some have reduced arrests and banned visits to nursing homes, and many have called in the National Guard for assistance—while other states have taken few steps so far to curb the COVID-19 pandemic. As states (and other countries) weigh taking different steps, they need to know how different policies are working, says Julia Raifman, assistant professor of health law, policy & management. That’s why she and a group of students at the School of Public Health have created a COVID-19 US state policy database.”
