Why Choose Face Shield?
Plastic face shields are most frequently worn by nurses or doctors who are very close to patients who may be exposed to droplets that contain the coronavirus.
A plastic shield will not filter air and will only block droplets from hitting your face, especially if not worn in conjunction with a cloth face covering.
Plastic masks can be helpful while experts work to determine the efficacy of cloth face coverings for health care professionals in close contact with the general public.
A face shield can serve as a physical barrier to the particles you emanate when you breathe, and as a physical barrier to particles hitting you when someone coughs or sneezes.
Shields are most effective when worn with a face mask.
