Facemask adherence by index patients. Daily proportion and 95% confidence interval of index patients wearing a facemask 'always' or 'mostly' in transmission-prone situations, in households assigned to wearing facemasks and practising intensified hand hygiene (MH group; dashed line) or to only wearing facemasks (M group; continuous line), stratified by season. Symbols represent the proportion of participants wearing facemasks before (green, hollow circles) and after (black squares) the intervention was fully implemented in the household.
