Why use MaskCount™?

MaskCount™ is designed to make it easy for anyone to discreetly collect valuable, anonymous data about mask wearing behavior. MaskCount™ is not about reporting good or bad behavior. It is about generating scientific evidence that may help us understand how to reduce the spread of COVID-19. You can be a part of that.


“Because mask wearing by infected people can reduce transmission risk, and because of the high proportion of asymptomatic infected individuals and transmissions, there appears to be a strong case for the effectiveness of widespread use of face masks in reducing the spread of COVID-19. However, there is no direct evidence thus far on the magnitude of such effects, especially at a population level.
