Reopening during the COVID-19 pandemic

Location intelligence is at the center of a coordinated reopening plan amid coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19). It provides leaders with tools to map, analyze, and assess trends and potential impacts, helping balance reopening businesses and the community with public health.


Collect public health and economic data using maps and dashboards to monitor reopening benchmarks. Anticipate where to take corrective action.


Analyze data trends and assess impacts on organizational or community resilience. Target specific actions to mitigate impacts during reopening.


Use maps and data to provide context and insights into evolving priorities. Show how you are balancing economic recovery with public health.
