Face Shields Effective for Stopping Spread of COVID-19
According to a recent Wall Street Journal article, face shields are playing a highly effective role in stopping the spread of COVID-19. Masks that cover the nose and mouth may not alone provide adequate protection. In medical settings, face shield use has been growing to prevent infectious disease spread, and now medical professionals are recommending face shield use be adopted beyond medical settings.
In the article, medical experts were asked about the effectiveness of face shields, both as personal protective gear, and as a method to stop transmission of COVID 19. According to Daniel McQuillen, vice president of the Infectious Diseases Society of America and infectious disease physician at Beth Israel Lahey Health in Boston, the eye protection face shields offer is very important. The virus is transmitted primarily through droplets expelled from an infected person as they cough, sneeze, or speak. If those droplets land in the eye of someone within close proximity, that person will become infected. This is why the full face protection provided by face shields is so beneficial. The shield also provides a more substantial barrier to spread when worn by an individual who may be unknowingly infectious.
Another critical advantage of face shields that the article mentions is that they are much less difficult to wear and breath in for extended periods. Wearers are less likely to touch their faces in an attempt to make adjustments, as they would in a nose and mouth mask.
Can-Do is pleased to be an affordable source for disposable plastic safety shields for personal face protection. Featuring a 1.5” foam headband and elastic strap, these face shields are comfortable to wear and easily accommodate glasses or protective eyewear. They are lightweight, low-cost, and in-stock for immediate shipment.
