Tracking COVID


I read a number of articles recently about how Google has added a COVID layer to its Google Maps application on mobile. So I had to check it out. In my community, it showed absolutely nothing.

Now, that would be great news but I know that it’s not true. So, I took a look across the Detroit River and found the info. According to information about the layer, the source for information comes from:

And, as I look across the border, I see the statistics from southeast Michigan.

And, of course, as you move further out and around, you see even more.

If I was doing some travelling in the United States, this would be good information to have on hand.

As Google does, it rolls out features in various locations. Hopefully, this information will become available in Ontario soon.
