• With greater adherence to social distancing, PPE guidelines, and regulatory rollback in the South and West, cases have peaked. Hospitalizations remain at an elevated level

• Deaths have been shown to lag increases in hospitalizations and case counts, and should plateau (though not rise much higher than 1,750 per day across the US) within the next two weeks.

• Our internal data and analysis shows that mobility data from iOS and Android mobile phones can be used to predict a rise in cases three weeks later.

• As organizations think about staying open, it is important to recognize there is no “one-size-fits-all” strategy.
