The Contents of MaskCheck

An app for iOS and Android devices

The free, easy to install app uses artificial intelligence to assess face mask compliance, encourages proper usage, and reports aggregated and non-personally identifiable information (non-PII) based mask compliance data. It detects faces as people walk past the tablet’s camera, and determines if they are wearing a mask (properly) or not. It provides visual feedback to encourage compliance. No interaction is required, and no images or PII are collected or saved.

A public health data repository service

The back-end infrastructure aggregates anonymous data submitted by a growing network of MaskCheck enabled devices and/or closed-circuit television (CCTV) systems. The data includes compliance based on geographic location, classification of location, and non PII-based demographic information.

A visualization map and data platform

The frequently updated mask compliance data feed can be used by any and all concerned parties under a free creative commons license, accessed via APIs by anyone in the world. This dynamic dataset is also visually represented via live dashboards in our MaskCheck Map at: Its content will continue to grow in tandem with MaskCheck deployment

Details for Setting Up MaskCheck app

MaskCheck determines if a person is wearing a mask when they enter a business or other public space.

  1. Download the free MaskCheck app
  2. Create a free MaskCheck account
  3. Choose audio and visual responses, and name the device location
  4. Set up your MaskCheck-enabled device* at your desired location and begin screening.
  5. Make sure to position your device at any location where people will pass one at a time

When a person steps in front of the screen, MaskCheck determines if they are wearing an appropriate protective face covering, and a visual — and optional audio — response will be triggered:

“Thanks for wearing a mask, come on in!”

“Please put on a face mask, we require masks to enter.”

*Detailed instructions can be found in the Setup Guide.
