WWU and SFU work together to analyze COVID-19’s impact on travel

Researchers at Western Washington University (WWU) are teaming up across the border to analyze COVID-19’s impact on travel.

WWU’s Border Policy Research Institute postdoctoral fellow Andréanne Bissonnette says that their next project will be done in conjunction with Simon Fraser University’s Pandemics and Borders Team.

“We’re focusing on equity and travel measures,” said Bissonnette. “The aim of [this] specific project with Simon Fraser University is to give decision makers real data and a real understanding of what’s been going on along the US/Canada border. There’s an absence in either country of a willingness to do a ‘lessons learned from’ this issue.”
