MASCUP! KAB Mask Use Survey


Thank you for your help with this important survey. Your responses will help inform policy decisions and practices related to mitigation prevention of COVID-19 among students at Eastern Kentucky University. The survey will be conducted from April 12 – April 26, 2021.

Identification of Participants & Purpose of Project 

You are being asked to participate in a project conducted by Eastern Kentucky University in collaboration with the CDC.  We will ask you some questions about your experiences with mask-wearing during COVID-19, your knowledge of and attitudes toward correct mask use, and how and when you wear a mask. Your voluntary responses will be anonymous and the information you provide will be kept confidential. 

After reading through the informed consent form below, you will see the link to participate in this online survey.


This project consists of an online survey that will be administered to individual participants through REDCap. You will be asked to provide answers to a series of questions related to knowledge, attitudes, behavior, academic achievement, and mental health.

Time Required

Participation in this project will require less than 10 minutes for each participant. 


The investigators do not perceive more than minimal risk from involvement in this project (that is, no risks beyond the risks associated with everyday life).


The results of this project will be presented at conferences and published in journals.  While individual responses are anonymously obtained and recorded online through the REDCap data capture form, data is kept in the strictest confidence.  No identifiable information will be collected from the participant and no identifiable responses will be presented in the final form of this project.  All data will be stored in a secure location only accessible to the principal investigators at Eastern Kentucky University, and CDC.  The investigators retain the right to use and publish this non-identifiable data.

Participation & Withdrawal

Participation is entirely voluntary.  You are free to choose not to participate.  All responses are anonymous.  Should you choose to participate, you can withdraw at any time without consequences of any kind.  However, once your responses have been submitted and anonymously recorded you will not be able to withdraw from the project.
