IU research shows most states have followed a similar policy path, starting with emergency declarations and ending with stay-at-home orders
Indiana University researchers have released results from the first comprehensive study of how COVID-19 mitigation policies affect measures of individual movement and contact in the United States. The results indicate that government mandates that happened late in the sequence of events like stay-at-home orders have very little impact on voluntary quarantine compared to early state actions of a more informational nature such as emergency declarations, and other state and local news.

Indiana University has been closely monitoring the rapidly changing situation with coronavirus (COVID-19) to plan and prepare for a potential outbreak.
Public Safety and Institutional Assurance has been leading the strategy and preparations associated with contingency planning and meeting with partners across the university and coordinating with local and state health departments and hospitals since early January.
Infections with coronavirus COVID-19 are being reported in a growing number of countries internationally, including the United States.
The coronavirus situation is evolving rapidly and all travelers, especially in or around the areas most affected by COVID-19, need to be aware of the possibility that new travel restrictions, transportation cancelations, or periods of required isolation could be put in place while travelers are overseas.

Professor Randy Schekman, the renowned Nobel Prize-winning American cell biologist at the University of California, Berkeley and former editor-in-chief of Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, will present his talk at 11:30 a.m. at the School of Public Health-Bloomington in PH C100, the Mobley Auditorium. The talk is free and open to the public.
“His visit to, and presentation at, the Indiana University School of Public Health-Bloomington is a singular honor reflecting the school’s emphasis on rigorous, reproducible, and transparent scientific public health research,” noted David B. Allison, Dean, Distinguished Professor, and Provost Professor at the IU School of Public Health-Bloomington.
Dr. Schekman received the 2013 Nobel Prize for Physiology or Medicine along with James Rothman and Thomas C. Südhof for their ground-breaking work on cell membrane vesicle trafficking.
In 2011, he became editor of eLife, a new high-profile open-access journal published by the Howard Hughes Medical Institute, the Max Planck Society and the Wellcome Trust launched in 2012. He was elected to the National Academy of Sciences in 1992.
“Dr. Schekman’s work directly relates to a number of research projects and collaborations currently underway at the School of Public Health-Bloomington across an array of departments, making his visit and talk particularly exciting,” continued Dean Allison.
The talk by Dr. Schekman is part of the Public Health Distinguished Colloquium Speaker Series which brings national leaders to the Indiana University Bloomington campus to highlight key topics and contemporary issues in public health.
