Resumen

This chapter presents the results of an investigation about the lack of access to public space and social interactions in three Latin-American cities by using literature review, location data and online survey (quantitative and qualitative information) from household members on how these restrictions affected their daily life and their relationship with community and public space use. Focused on Bogota, Quito, and Mexico DF (n= 650), geospatial tools are used to correlate the survey’s respondents’ answers with official COVID-19 reports from government. The results show the correlation between the number of contagions by zones and users’ behavioral shifts in terms of housing and public space use and adaptation. This could support the efforts of communities and decision makers to improve public health standards, reduce vulnerability to COVID-19, improve their resilience and enhance urban proximity to essential services and public spaces.
