CovidReduce is a project that aims to help the public to reduce personal infection risk of COVID-19 through education and tools. CovidReduce currently has four programs: Scenario Analysis, Education, Mask Tester/Fit Monitor, and Health Monitor App. The project overview video.
Scenario Analysis provides pragmatic tools to quantitatively evaluate airborne infection risk for use in schools, daycare centers, offices, at industry locations, retail stores, home, medical treatment centers, etc.
Education for the public and schools. Our STEM education programs empower 8th to 12th graders to understand and reduce airborne infection in schools and at home.
Mask Tester/Fit Monitor
Mask Tester/Fit Monitor quantifies the protection factor of masks used in the county, and provides data and masks to increase the effective protection factor by 100x, particularly to protect vulnerable populations (e.g., older teachers, individuals with pre-existing conditions).
Health Monitor App
Health Monitor App (Android/iPhone) lowers infection risk over the course of a day and integrates the benefits from the previous programs.
