Smart Eye’s studies often require participants to be recorded while not wearing a face mask. Smart Eye and Affectiva are committed to mitigating the risks from COVID-19 for both our employees and paid participants. For this reason, we STRONGLY  RECOMMEND that all participants be vaccinated against COVID-19 to limit the risks of COVID-19 for themselves and those they interact with. We also require that participants wear face masks while inside our office and not in the process of being recorded. If we are recording inside, we will ask participant groups to distance themselves from our employees whenever possible.
