Face Shield vs Face Mask
Customers ask us if a face shield replaces the need for a mask. Face shields do not replace masks. Face shields should be worn in addition to face masks when entering stores, buildings or closed spaces.
As the debate arises over whether tiny coronavirus droplets can float on air currents, protecting the eyes and the entire face becomes a bigger issue. A mask alone does not protect your eyes. A Face shield does not protect you from someone coughing behind you. Wearing both layers of protection together will achieve the best protection against COVID-19.
Where Our Customers Are Wearing Their Face Shields
Unlike a face mask, plastic face shields wrap around your entire face making it ideal for protecting your eyes, mouth, and nose from flying debris, droplets, aerosols, sprays and splatters. Our customers are wearing protective face shields and masks when they:
- travel on an airplane.
- run errands in enclosed buildings.
- can’t maintain 6 feet to meet social distancing guidelines.
- work in a setting where they talk to customers face-to-face including: retail, beauty services, tattoo parlors, teachers, health care industry, hospitality industry, register checkout, etc.
- take their children to summer camp. Some summer camps are requiring attendees to wear face shields in Miami-Dade.
Face Shields Help You Avoid Touching Your Face
Face shields are easier and more comfortable to wear than masks. Face shields only make contact with your skin at a small portion of your forehead as opposed to face masks that cover half your face with a material that can create the urge to itch. An itchy face leads to touching your face; and that’s something you want to avoid when protecting yourself from COVID-19.
Benefits of Wearing a Face Shield
- Easy to disinfect: A simple alcohol wipe or rinse with soap and hot water is all it takes for the shields to be contaminant-free again
- Easier to reuse: Face shields can be sterilized and cleaned by the user, making them reusable indefinitely until some component breaks or cracks.
- Stops you from touching your face: prevent people from touching their faces or inadvertently exposing themselves to the coronavirus.
- Comfortable to wear: face shields are easier and more comfortable to wear than masks.
- Face shields don’t hinder communication: People wearing medical masks often have to remove them to communicate with others around them, which increases their risk of being exposed or infecting others
- Reminder of social distancing: The use of a face shield is also a reminder to maintain 6 feet of separation to meet social distancing requirements, but allows visibility of facial expressions and lip movements for speech perception.
