LAS VEGAS, NV (KXNT) - Nevada has been on the wrong side of many a survey through the years, from eduction  performance to heath care quality to overall happiness.

When it comes to "Social Distancing", though, Nevada is ace-ing that test.

A new study from the website Unacast gives the Silver State an "A" for our social distancing skills. Social distancing has been encouraged, if not outright ordered, in an attempt to slow the spread of COVID-19 (coronavirus).

Unacast calls themselves a "human mobility insights" company. In order to gather date for the study, they tracked smartphone location data typically reserved for marketing companies. Unacast decided to use and release that data for public service.

Along with Nevada, other places getting an "A" for social distancing: New Jersey, Vermont, Massachusetts, and the District Of Columbia.

Only one state received an F: Wyoming
