The Lyndon B. Johnson School of Public Affairs at The University of Texas at Austin has recently published a policy toolkit entitled Resiliency in the Age of COVID-19. Twenty-nine LBJ School authors came together to craft interdisciplinary and resilience-based policy solutions, published in a policy toolkit, which trains a forward-thinking lens on what went wrong and what it will take to fix the system flaws exposed by the pandemic. The extensive toolkit covers many crucial topics in the categories such as Leadership & Decision-Making, Public Finance, Community Well-Being & Public Health, Inclusion & Economic Development, and Climate Change.

Google has published COVID-19 Community Mobility Reports which aim to provide insights into what has changed in response to policies aimed at combating COVID-19. The reports chart movement trends over time by geography, across different categories of places such as retail and recreation, groceries and pharmacies, parks, transit stations, workplaces, and residential. The Community Mobility Reports were developed to be helpful while adhering to Google’s stringent privacy protocols and protecting people’s privacy. No personally identifiable information, such as an individual’s location, contacts or movement, will be made available at any point. These reports will be available for a limited time, so long as public health officials find them useful in their work to stop the spread of COVID-19.
