#WorldMaskWeek 2021 was a movement to encourage sustained mask-wearing to help bring us closer to the end of the COVID-19 pandemic. 

As variants spread and countries continue to grapple with the ongoing pandemic, we must stay focused on what keeps us safe. During World Mask Week, we asked people to join the #WorldMaskWeek movement on social media by sharing a photo of themselves in their favorite mask and tagging someone to say #ThanksforMasking. People, leaders, and organizations from 171 countries across the globe showed their leadership by masking up, sharing with their networks, and encouraging their peers and communities to help us all stay safe and bring this pandemic to an end.
