COVID-19 may still be around, but boy have we come a long way since 2020. The U.S. continues to fight against the COVID-19 virus and working to keep us safe and away from another global pandemic. The priority of safety is also at the forefront in order to keep us getting the economy back on track. 2020 was one of the craziest years for everyone and being stuck in the house was hard for us all. As COVID-19 restrictions are falling off more and more, some states are still working to keep resources openly available for all of their residents.
Wallet Hub conducted a study and determined that some states are a bit safer than others. From COVID-19 resources, amount of people with the vaccine, and other factors contribute to this. With over half of the population fully vaccinated, it can still be tough to stay safe when visiting other states. Luckily for us, we’re in one of the safest states during COVID-19. Wallet Hub compared states to determine the safest and most dangerous states during COVID-19. The data includes the level of transmission, rates of positive testing, hospitalizations, and deaths. Here are the top 20 safest states during COVID-19.
