In medical settings, the face shield is worn when the chance of hazardous substances or bodily fluids getting into the eyes, nose, and mouth are high. In the recent global COVID-19 pandemic, face shields provided an additional layer of protection to the frontline warriors and even the general public against the coronavirus infection. Made out of plexiglass sheet or plastic that curves around the face and an adjustable strap that holds the sheet in place, face shields are quite easy to wear and fairly breathable. Furthermore, to ensure proper protection, the face shield should extend well past the chin and curve around the sides of your face. It is also possible to sanitize and wash face shields for reuse, however, experts recommend using disposable face shields for optimum safety. Also, remember to wear the face shields with a mask to reduce the risk of exposure to COVID-19.
