Face detection with mask

I trying to build whether a person is wearing a mask or not
I have facial recognition with HOG . It is working fine with normal images but it is not able to recognize the
face when a person were a mask.
Can u please suggest how to work on it?

Do you have the training data for faces with masks on?

yes i have collected around 500 images with mask

Can you please give a brief about how you prepared the dataset, how many non-mask faces did you have, how is the model performing on your test set, etc.

Train
Mask
-500 single person mask images from Google
-175 argumented artificial masked images on person
With out mask train - 675 images

Training accuracy - 93
Validation accuracy - 86

Can you try checking how it performs on mask and without mask validation data?
