Why do we need a face shield?
Simply because they provide a high level of protection. Covering the whole face – the mouth, nose and eyes – it prevents viral particles to reach you.
Protective face visors can be very useful tools for those facing very reg contact, at close proximity, with others – for exaple, in medical settings.
They also have great value in professions where nonverbal communication through facial expressions is important, such as teaching. They could be valuable in giving protection and confidence to teachers, enabling them to return to a classroom environment.
Health-care workers, emergency services staff, transport workers and those working in education can be protected as well as people working in private sector settings such as retail, services and hospitality.
