Mask Transit is a medical student and volunteer run organization started in New York City and Boston. Our goal is to mobilize masks to our most vulnerable community members, who are at the highest risk of acquiring COVID-19. Boston has not yet reached its peak , so we hope that by getting these masks out as fast as we can, we can help in flattening the curve. Our hope is that these masks will serve as valuable tools in decreasing the number of new infections while simultaneously decreasing the burden on the healthcare system.
