City-by-City Views of America’s Office Use

Kastle Access Control Data Highlights Adoption of Shelter-at-Home Policies

The aggregated office access data anonymized from the over 41,000 businesses and millions of office workers covered by Kastle’s cloud-based access control system nationwide creates a stark visual of the decline in office work across major U.S. metro areas. But not all cities have reacted uniformly in their adoption rates of social distancing and shelter-at-home policies.  Similarly, some states, cities and counties are moving more aggressively to ease previous restrictions.  Check here in the coming days and weeks to see where workers are returning to the office most readily as governors and mayors begin to gradually ease constraints to open up their economies.
