Montana Has Slowed Down More Than Most States Due to COVID-19
Coronavirus first hit the US just about two months ago, and across the country, people started to go into Social Distancing Mode - businesses and schools have closed, people are working from home... for a lot of people, the days are really starting to blend together.
And that lack of stuff to do has just made time feel longer. Can you believe it's only been a month since movie theaters and schools and restaurants all closed down in Montana? At least now, there's scientific backing to explain why time has felt so slow here - according to a new study by WalletHub, Montana ranked number 8 on their list of "States Slowing Down The Most During The COVID-19 Pandemic."
To figure that out, they measured the increase or decrease of visits to different kinds of places across all states, including retail & recreation, grocery & pharmacy, parks, transit stations, workplaces and homes. I'm encouraged that Montana has been taking the necessary precautions, even if I am starting to go a little stir-crazy.
Number one on the list was Hawaii, with New York following closely behind. And all the way at the bottom? The fastest-moving state in the US, Nebraska.
