About the Project

Description

Covid Act Now’s mission is to help the US reopen safely. We're building tools to provide useful, accessible, and actionable data to policy decision-makers and public health leaders charged with reducing the number of COVID19 infections in the United States and re-opening society.

How far along is it

Since launching our US Interventions Model on March 20th, we've been accessed by over 8M Americans, and our model has been used by every level of government across the U.S., the military, private sector, and more. The model has also been adapted for use by several countries around the world, including India.
