Why Do We Need Face Shields?

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, hospitals are in dire need of face masks, face shields, ventilators, and more. Face masks and goggles play a huge role in keeping our healthcare professionals safe from coronavirus. However, there are face mask shortages across the nation due to interruptions in the supply chain and the spike public demand when the news of coronavirus became prominent. Although face masks are still needed by numerous hospitals, face shields can greatly reduce the demand for face masks.

Face masks, typically made with cloth, have been shown to be less effective than medical-grade face masks. As these masks need to be manufactured and cannot be sewn through public efforts, face shields are a better solution. Face shields cover more of the face than masks, prevent wearers from touching their face, and are durable, reusable alternatives.
