Data shows potential COVID-19 spread from Florida spring breakers

Fort Lauderdale, Fla. — If you need motivation to stay-at-home - here you go.

Tectonix  released data that shows just how far Florida spring breaker's could potentially spread the corona virus.

The company tracked random cell phone signals from one beach in Fort Lauderdale that were gathered at the beginning of March.

Chief Operating Officer Jefferson Wilson said they chose a specific beach then using their own technology followed the phone signals for the rest of the month.

“We wanted to see the true footprint of social gathering like spring break beach crowds really have on our society in the face of a global pandemic,” as stated in the video.

The signals spread across Florida,  up the east coast and into the mid-west and begins to impact states as far away as Arizona.
