Kidsmasks.org

was started from a small, handmade children's clothing shop in the San Francisco Bay Area.  Created by a former epidemiology research fellow from Stanford Medical School's Preventative Research Center and  Columbia University's Mailman School of Public Health, this guide was originally created to make public health and kids health news more accessible in the many languages used by our neighbors in the Bay Area.  

 

We used our research expertise to find the best available and current guidance for you and your family with the belief that good health and good choices should be available for everyone.

We partnered with our friends in local and global children's health research to help our neighbors go back to school this year in the most important look of all: good health.

We'd like to share our findings with anyone who'd like to stay up to date in staying safe and healthy while having fun.

More languages and accessible features coming soon!  

Meanwhile see our updated guide for 2022!
