Google has released data on how Ireland has responded to social distancing guidelines in recent weeks.

A county-by-county report has been published by Google which shows how visits and lengths of stay at a variety of locations have changed since the Government introduced measures to limit the spread of Covid-19 in Ireland.

The below reports show trends over a number of weeks and is up to date as of last Sunday (it takes a number of days to produce the reports).

The reports examine the movement of people compared to a baseline, which is the median value for the corresponding day of the week during the five-week period between January 3 and February 6, before the first case of coronavirus was confirmed in Ireland.

The data examines a number of different locations; including retail & recreation, grocery & pharmacy, parks, transit stations, workplaces and residential.

The data is aggregated and anonymised, which means that no personal information is identifiable.

It should also be noted that in a number of cases, there was not enough data to allow Google to provide a complete analysis and that is made clear in the below county-by-county breakdown.
