Re f2f Exposure
I’ve wondered whether the ideas presented here could also look at the impact of “triggering events”, aside from disease. What is the impact, for example, of a major sports/tourist (triggering) event on the movement of residents/visitors within a region?

Are there other ways to collect movement data (eg tourist kiosks, hotel data, gas stations, subway/bus/taxi data, highway cams) and look at such interactions and movement?
