Best Face Shields for Maximizing Your Protection Against Coronavirus

Time:2022-08-25 Views:63
The most important line of defense against COVID-19, including the super-transmissible Delta variant, is vaccination. Unfortunately, immunization alone isn‘t enough to completely reduce your risk of contracting the illness. Reports of breakthrough cases are increasingly common, and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recently updated its recommendations for vaccinated people to continue wearing protective gear indoors in public places in locations with high transmission rates.

And while you likely have a face mask or ten on hand, there‘s a good chance you‘re missing another piece of important personal protective equipment: face shields. These tiny guards maximize your protection against germs by covering all mucosal surfaces (moist tissue) on your face, including the nose, mouth, and eyes. While a cloth face mask covers the first two on the list, it leaves the latter up to chance.

 But it‘s not a space to skimp: Research published in the Lancet concluded people without eye protection are three times more likely to contract COVID-19 than those with it. And although unlikely, there are also case reports of people contracting the virus due to lack of eye protection. In fact, Geoffrey Leung, MD, ambulatory medical director for Riverside University Health System in California, previously told Health that goggles could help reduce the risk of infection by up to 90%, based on evidence from other respiratory infections.


While you could invest in a pair of safety glasses, a face shield is an expert-approved alternative. It not only covers the eyes from coronavirus-carrying droplets, but extends that additional protection to the nose and mouth. And although the CDC doesn‘t currently recommend face shields as an alternative to masks—they should always be worn together—it suggests finding a design that wraps fully around the face and extends past the chin.
