About Our Masks

Based on the 3M comparison on the left, it is reasonable to consider China KN95, AS/NZ P2, Korea 1st Class, and Japan DS2 FFRs as “similar” to US NIOSH N95 and European FFP2 respirators, for filtering non-oil-based particles such as those resulting from wildfires, PM 2.5 air pollution, volcanic eruptions, or bioaerosols (e.g. viruses). However, prior to selecting a respirator, users should consult their local respiratory protection regulations and requirements or check with their local public health authorities for selection guidance.

According to WHO mask guidance, if you have COVID-19, COVID-19 symptoms, are caring for someone who may be infected, or are among the vulnerable population (aged ≥ 60 years, people with cardiovascular disease or diabetes mellitus, chronic lung disease, cancer, cerebrovascular disease, or immunosuppression) then a medical mask, such as an N95 or KN95, is the safest bet to protect yourself from the virus or contain the spread if you have it.

Similarly, if you’re in a living space with or are caring for someone who has or may potentially have COVID-19, these medical masks are the only proper equipment. 

Placing a surgical mask over the outside of the N95 or KN95 while wearing it can also help preserve it. Social distancing and frequent hand-washing should also be practiced at all times.

Frequently Asked Questions for N95 Mask

Why do face masks matter with this coronavirus?

With the new coronavirus, known as SARS-CoV-2 , the largest amount of viral shedding, or transmission, happens early in the course of the disease. Therefore, people may be contagious before they even start to show symptoms.

Moreover, scientific models suggest that up to 80 percent of transmission stems from asymptomatic carriers of the virus.

Emerging research suggests that N95 mask use may help limit the transmission of the virus by people who don’t realize that they may have it.

It’s also possible that you could acquire SARS-CoV-2 if you touch your mouth, nose, or eyes after touching a surface or object that has the virus on it. However, this is not thought to be the main way that the virus spreads.

When Should You Wear a Mask?

The CDC recommends that everyone over age 2 wear cloth face masks in public places where it’s hard to stay 6 feet away from other people.

Wear a face mask if you are sick and around other people or animals, even at home. Caregivers should use them when cleaning and disinfecting a sick person’s bedroom or bathroom.

If you need to call 911, put on a mask before medical help arrives

Remember that a N95 mask should be used in addition to other COVID-19 safety steps. It doesn’t replace them. You still need to limit your contact with other people, wash your hands often with soap for at least 20 seconds, and keep common surfaces clean.

Unsure About Actually Wearing a Face Mask? Here’s How (and Why) to Do It

Tips for wearing one properly + how to wash it To mask or not to mask? That has been the question on all of our minds for the last few weeks. Before, the consensus was for only those who are considered high risk for the coronavirus (COVID-19) to wear them.

But in light of recent findings, the CDC now recommends that we wear masks or cloth face coverings in public settings that might make it hard to practice social distancing etiquette and that’s why we also recommend that you and your family members consider making it a part of your daily routine,” says Aaron Hamilton, MD “Wearing a cloth face mask is recommended as an extra layer of protection,” Dr. Hamilton says. “That means that you should still be following any shelter-in-place orders in your community. But when you’re venturing out to the grocery store, pharmacy or hospital, it’s wise to wear one.”

When is it important to wear a mask?

The CDC recommends wearing cloth face masks in public settings where compliance with physical distancing measures may be difficult to achieve and maintain. This is key in areas where community-based transmission is high.

This includes, but is not limited to, settings such as:

  • grocery stores
  • pharmacies
  • hospitals and other healthcare settings
  • job sites, especially if physical distancing measures aren’t feasible

How to wear a face mask effectively:

It’s all about getting the right fit and covering your bases, Dr. Pate says. “A mask should cover the bridge of the nose, mouth, and both lateral sides of the cheeks to prevent air from entering,” she says. “There are many people who improperly wear one or get the incorrect size with the nose exposed, which defeats the purpose of wearing a mask in the first place.” The best materials for DIY masks based on filtration and breathability are cotton-made fabrics, specifically denim, 80- to 120-thread count cotton bed sheets or a 100% cotton T-shirt, or a thick (.4 to .5 mm) canvas material, according to new research conducted by Smart Air . The company suggests holding up your fabric to light; the more opaque it is, the better. Several masks come with an opening for a removable filter like a coffee filter or a paper towel . A recent study out of Northwestern University also found that when a nylon stocking was worn over a mask, it worked even better by creating a tighter seal in some cases even outperforming medical-grade surgical masks.

Do face masks work?

CDC experts say recent studies show that a significant portion of individuals who have the coronavirus don’t have any symptoms (in other words they’re “asymptomatic”). And furthermore, those who eventually develop symptoms (or those who are “pre-symptomatic”) can spread the virus to others before they show any symptoms.

“The coronavirus can spread among people who are less than 6 feet apart, whether that’s by talking to one another, coughing or sneezing,” Dr. Hamilton explains. “This holds true even if none of those people notice symptoms commonly reported with COVID-19, like fever, shortness of breath or coughing.” Dr. Hamilton says a cloth mask will not prevent you from breathing in respiratory droplets that carry a virus, like COVID-19. But it will help to protect others from you if you happen to be infected, with or without symptoms. Furthermore, cloth masks help to reinforce social distancing and good cough etiquette, which ultimately will help to slow how far the virus spreads.

Cloth masks can also prevent you from touching your face, and can be a visual reminder to practice social distancing, Dr. Hamilton adds.

Does everyone need to wear a face mask?

The following people should NOT wear a face mask, according to the CDC:

  • Children under age 2.
  • Anyone who has trouble breathing.
  • Anyone who is unconscious, incapacitated or can’t remove a face mask without help.

How to spot a counterfeit N95 Mask

Counterfeit respirators are products that are falsely marketed and sold as being NIOSH-approved and may not be capable of providing appropriate respiratory protection to workers.
When NIOSH becomes aware of counterfeit respirators or those misrepresenting NIOSH approval on the market, we will post them here to alert users, purchasers, and manufacturers.

How to identify a NIOSH-approved respirator:

NIOSH-approved respirators have an approval label on or within the packaging of the respirator (i.e. on the box itself and/or within the users’ instructions). Additionally, an abbreviated approval is on the FFR itself.

You can verify the approval number on the NIOSH Certified Equipment List (CEL) or the NIOSH Trusted-Source page to determine if the respirator has been approved by NIOSH. NIOSH-approved FFRs will always have one the following designations: N95, N99, N100, R95, R99, R100, P95, P99, P100.

(source: cdc.gov)

Is an N95 Mask Reusable?

A key consideration for safe extended use is that the respirator must maintain its fit and function. Workers in other industries routinely use N95 masks for several hours uninterrupted. Experience in these settings indicates that respirators can function within their design specifications for 8 hours of continuous or intermittent use.

Some research studies (14, 15) have recruited healthcare workers as test subjects and many of those subjects have successfully worn an N95 mask at work for several hours before they needed to remove them. Thus, the maximum length of continuous use in non-dusty healthcare workplaces is typically dictated by hygienic concerns (e.g., the respirator was discarded because it became contaminated) or practical considerations (e.g., need to use the restroom, meal breaks, etc.), rather than a pre-determined number of hours.

If extended use of N95 respirators is permitted, respiratory protection program administrators should ensure adherence to administrative and engineering controls to limit potential N95 mask surface contamination (e.g., use of barriers to prevent droplet spray contamination) and consider additional training and reminders (e.g., posters) for staff to reinforce the need to minimize unnecessary contact with the respirator surface, strict adherence to hand hygiene practices, and proper Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) donning and doffing technique.

If we’re practicing social distancing, do we still need to wear medical masks?

A mnemonic that Chin-Hong likes is the “Three W’s to ward off COVID-19:” wearing a mask, washing your hands, and watching your distance.

“But of the three, the most important thing is wearing a mask,” he said. Compared to wearing a mask, cleaning your iPhone or wiping down your groceries are “just distractors.” There’s little evidence that fomites (contaminated surfaces) are a major source of transmission, whereas there is a lot of evidence of transmission through inhaled droplets, said Chin-Hong.

“You should always wear masks and socially distance,” said Rutherford. “I would be hesitant to try to parse it apart. But, yes, I think mask wearing is more important.”

Why did the CDC change its guidance on wearing masks?

The original CDC guidance partly was based on what was thought to be low disease prevalence earlier in the pandemic, said Chin-Hong. “So, of course, you’re preaching that the juice isn’t really worth the squeeze to have the whole population wear masks in the beginning – but that was really a reflection of not having enough testing, anyway,” he said. “We were getting a false sense of security.” Rutherford was more blunt. The legitimate concern that the limited supply of surgical masks and N95 respirators should be saved for health care workers should not have prevented more nuanced messaging about the benefits of masking. “We should have told people to wear cloth masks right off the bat,” he said.

Another factor “is that culturally, the U.S. wasn’t really prepared to wear masks,” unlike some countries in Asia where the practice of wearing a 3 ply mask is more common, said Chin-Hong. Even now, some Americans are choosing to ignore CDC guidance and local mandates on masks, a hesitation that Chin-Hong says is “foolhardy.”

What may have finally convinced the CDC to change its guidance in favor of 3 ply masks and other masks were rising disease prevalence and a clearer understanding that both pre-symptomatic and asymptomatic transmission are possible – even common. Studies have found that viral load peaks in the days before symptoms begin and that speaking is enough to expel virus-carrying droplets.

“I think the biggest thing with COVID now that shapes all of this guidance on masks is that we can’t tell who’s infected,” said Chin-Hong. “You can’t look in a crowd and say, oh, that person should wear mask. There’s a lot of asymptomatic infection, so everybody has to wear a mask.”

If we’re practicing social distancing, do we still need to wear masks?

A mnemonic that Chin-Hong likes is the “Three W’s to ward off COVID-19:” wearing a 3 ply mask or other mask, washing your hands, and watching your distance.

“But of the three, the most important thing is wearing a mask,” he said. Compared to wearing a mask, cleaning your iPhone or wiping down your groceries are “just distractors.” There’s little evidence that fomites (contaminated surfaces) are a major source of transmission, whereas there is a lot of evidence of transmission through inhaled droplets, said Chin-Hong.

3m N95 mask 8511 - Popular 3M Particulate Respirator - Box of 10

3m N95 mask 8511

3m N95 mask 8511The 3M™ Particulate Respirator 8511 features a proprietary 3M™ Cool Flow™ Valve and helps provide comfortable, reliable respiratory protection. It is ideally suited for hot/dusty work settings that require long periods of wear.

The 3M™ Particulate Respirator 8511, N95 is a disposable particulate respirator designed to help provide reliable respiratory protection against certain non-oil based particles. This respirator can help reduce inhalation exposure to certain airborne biological particles, such as mold, Bacillus Anthracis, and Mycobacterium Tuberculosis, but it cannot eliminate the risk of contracting infection, illness, or disease. Soft inner material provides added comfort while the respirator’s cup design makes it spacious and durable. Braided headbands and an adjustable M nose clip help provide a custom and secure seal. The respirator incorporates 3M’s proprietary technology with advanced electrostatically charged microfiber filter media designed for ease of breathing. This respirator is compatible with a variety of protective eyewear and hearing protection. Fitted with a 3M™ Cool Flow™ Exhalation Valve, this respirator is ideally suited for work situations involving heat, humidity, or long periods of wear. The proprietary valve is designed to release hot, humid exhaled breath quickly, helping to prevent an unpleasant build up of heat inside the facepiece – a significant cause of discomfort to respirator wearers. The valve’s efficiency in keeping breathing cool and comfortable has been demonstrated through testing*: the atmosphere inside a respirator with a Cool Flow valve is on average 7.5°F (-13.6°C) cooler than a similar product without the valve. This makes 3M™ Cool Flow™ Exhalation Valve respirators ideal for long periods of wear, especially where conditions are hot, humid or physically demanding. *Testing conducted in a 3M laboratory. Testing protocol, data generation, and conclusions were reviewed and approved by an expert from The University of Minnesota.

  • NIOSH-approved for filtration against certain oil and non-oil based particles remove oil.
  • 3M™ Cool Flow™ Exhalation Valve helps reduce heat build-up inside the respirator
  • M-Nose clip adjusts easily for fewer pressure points and greater comfort
  • Braided headbands’ two-strap design with dual point attachment helps provide a secure seal
  • 3M™ Cool Flow™ Exhalation Valve helps reduce heat build-up inside the respirator

Frequently Asked Questions

What are some differences between dust masks and 3M N95  mask 8511 respirators?

Although a dust mask and a 3M N95 mask 85111 respirator can often look similar, they actually have different purposes and protection levels. Typically, a dust mask has a single strap and has the same cup shape as a disposable 3M N95 mask 8511 respirator. However, dust masks can also come in the form of a loose fitting rectangular piece of material with an ear loop on each side, or straps to tie behind the head. Additionally, dust masks typically do not have any information printed on them.

The most significant difference between dust masks and 3M N95 mask 8511 respirators is that dust masks aren’t NIOSH-approved disposable filtering facepieces. A common misconception is that dust masks protect the wearer from hazardous exposures, but in reality, they do not protect the wearer at all. Dust masks are designed to be used for one-way protection only – capturing large particles or droplets from the wearer and preventing them from being spread to their environment.

Dust masks should be worn when there is no risk of being exposed to hazardous dusts, gases or vapors. They are ideal for non-hazardous environments and are not considered to be a personal protective device that can provide respiratory protection to the wearer. They are intended to be used in non-regulated situations, such as when mowing grass.

What are some characteristics of 3M N95 mask 8511 NIOSH-approved respirators?

All 3M N95 mask 8511 respirators designed to help protect the wearer from hazardous environments have been tested and certified by NIOSH. This includes air-purifying respirators (disposable, reusable and powered air) plus supplied air respiratory devices (airline or SCBA).

Types of tests conducted by NIOSH include key performance criteria, such as filter efficiency, breathing resistance and if a disposable respirator has an exhalation valve, it’s tested for leakage.

Other characteristics of NIOSH-approved tight fitting particulate respirators, such as a disposable respirator, are as follows:

  1. Designed to fit tightly – they have a seal around the wearer’s face which helps prevent air from leaking into the respirator, thus protecting the worker from particular hazards.
  2. Approval levels are: ​
  • N – no oil present;
  • R – resistant to oil mist; or
  • P – oil mist proof
  1. Have an efficiency of 95%, 99% or 99.9%
  2. Require fit testing
  • Before initial use;
  • Every two years (according to CSA Standard Z94.4: Selection, use and care of respirators);
  • If the wearer fails their user seal check when they don a respirator; or
  • If there is a change to the wearer, such as weight loss or gain, changes in oral structure or piercings that interfere with the facial seal
  1. Requires that a respiratory protection program be developed and implemented.

It includes:

  • Hazard identification and assessment
  • Roles and responsibilities
  • Selection of the appropriate respirator
  • Training
  • Health surveillance of respirator users
  • Respirator fit testing
  • Cleaning, inspection, maintenance, and storage of respirators
  • Program evaluation
  • Recordkeeping

Frequently Asked Questions

What is a Surgical Medical Face Mask?

A surgical medical face mask is a loose-fitting, disposable device that creates a physical barrier between the mouth and nose of the wearer and potential contaminants in the immediate environment. Surgical medical face masks are regulated under 21 CFR 878.4040. Surgical masks are not to be shared and may be labeled as surgical, isolation, dental, or medical procedure masks. They may come with or without a face shield. These are often referred to as face masks, although not all face masks are regulated as surgical medical face masks.

Surgical medical face masks are made in different thicknesses and with different ability to protect you from contact with liquids. These properties may also affect how easily you can breathe through the face mask and how well the surgical mask protects you.

If worn properly, a surgical mask is meant to help block large-particle droplets, splashes, sprays, or splatter that may contain germs (viruses and bacteria), keeping it from reaching your mouth and nose. Surgical masks may also help reduce exposure of your saliva and respiratory secretions to others.

While a surgical mask may be effective in blocking splashes and large-particle droplets, a face mask, by design, does not filter or block very small particles in the air that may be transmitted by coughs, sneezes, or certain medical procedures. Surgical masks also do not provide complete protection from germs and other contaminants because of the loose fit between the surface of the mask and your face.

Surgical masks are not intended to be used more than once. If your mask is damaged or soiled, or if breathing through the mask becomes difficult, you should remove the face mask, discard it safely, and replace it with a new one. To safely discard your mask, place it in a plastic bag and put it in the trash. Wash your hands after handling the used mask.

Why do face masks matter with this coronavirus?

With the new coronavirus, known as SARS-CoV-2 , the largest amount of viral shedding, or transmission, happens early in the course of the disease. Therefore, people may be contagious before they even start to show symptoms.

Moreover, scientific models suggest that up to 80 percent of transmission stems from asymptomatic carriers of the virus.

Emerging research suggests that widespread mask use may help limit the transmission of the virus by people who don’t realize that they may have it.

It’s also possible that you could acquire SARS-CoV-2 if you touch your mouth, nose, or eyes after touching a surface or object that has the virus on it. However, this is not thought to be the main way that the virus spreads

When Should You Wear a Mask?

The CDC recommends that everyone over age 2 wear cloth face masks in public places where it’s hard to stay 6 feet away from other people.

Wear a face mask if you are sick and around other people or animals, even at home. Caregivers should use them when cleaning and disinfecting a sick person’s bedroom or bathroom.

If you need to call 911, put on a mask before medical help arrives.

Remember that a mask should be used in addition to other COVID-19 safety steps. It doesn’t replace them. You still need to limit your contact with other people, wash your hands often with soap for at least 20 seconds, and keep common surfaces clean.

When is it important to wear a mask?

The CDC recommends wearing cloth face masks in public settings where compliance with physical distancing measures may be difficult to achieve and maintain. This is key in areas where community-based transmission is high.

This includes, but is not limited to, settings such as:

    • grocery stores
  • pharmacies
  • hospitals and other healthcare settings
  • job sites, especially if physical distancing measures aren’t feasible

Frequently Asked Questions

What to look for in eye protection?

As Dr. Fauci said, if you have eye protection already, you should use it. So, what counts as appropriate eyewear?

Standard eyeglasses or sunglasses can provide some protection, but they’re not foolproof, due to the openings on the top, bottom and sides where aerosols could still get in, Steinemann says. That said, contact lens wearers might want to consider wearing glasses to avoid touching your eyes, the American Academy of Ophthalmology suggests.

Face shields work because they protect the crown and chin from exposure, as well as the eyes. The clear plastic wraps around the face to the point of each ear to protect the wearer from splashes and sprays. Although they provide good eye protection, you still have to wear an earloop mask when wearing a face shield in order to cover your nose and mouth.

And to be protective, goggles should “fit snugly, particularly from the corners of the eye across the brow,” the Centers for Disease Control says.

Ultimately, the best thing you can do is continue to wear an earloop mask, maintain social distance, wash your hands, or use hand sanitizer and stop touching your face.

Does everyone need to wear a face mask?

The following people should NOT wear an earloop face mask, according to the CDC:

  • Children under age 2.
  • Anyone who has trouble breathing.
  • Anyone who is unconscious, incapacitated or cannot remove a face mask without help.

Source: (health.clevelandclinic.org)

How to wear an earloop mask effectively?

It’s all about getting the right fit and covering your bases, Dr. Pate says. “An earloop mask should cover the bridge of the nose, mouth, and both lateral sides of the cheeks to prevent air from entering,” she says. “There are many people who improperly wear an earloop mask or get the incorrect size with the nose exposed, which defeats the purpose of wearing an earloop mask in the first place.”

Though it’s been widely reported, it bears repeating: With a shortage of N95 masks still ongoing, the best thing you can do for healthcare professionals is to save surgical masks for them and opt for a fabric or cloth mask. Below, we’ve listed several online outlets where you’ll find cloth face masks in stock and/or fabric materials to DIY. Read on to see all the options available:

Unsure About Actually Wearing a Face Mask?

Here’s How (and Why) to Do It

Tips for wearing an earloop mask properly + how to wash it To mask or not to mask? That has been the question on all of our minds for the last few weeks. Before, the consensus was for only those who are considered high risk for the coronavirus (COVID-19) to wear them.

Cleveland Clinic is a non-profit academic medical center.

But in light of recent findings, the CDC now recommends that we wear earloop masks or cloth face coverings in public settings that might make it hard to practice social distancing etiquette and that’s why we also recommend that you and your family members consider making it a part of your daily routine,” says Aaron Hamilton, MD “Wearing a cloth face mask is recommended as an extra layer of protection,” Dr. Hamilton says. “That means that you should still be following any shelter-in-place orders in your community. But when you’re venturing out to the grocery store, pharmacy or hospital, it’s wise to wear one.”

Frequently Asked Questions

What is a face shield?

Face shields are personal protective equipment devices that are used by many workers (e.g., medical, dental, veterinary) for protection of the facial area and associated mucous membranes (eyes, nose, mouth) from splashes, sprays, and spatter of body fluids. These shields are generally not used alone, but in conjunction with other protective equipment and are therefore classified as adjunctive personal protective equipment. Although there are millions of potential users of face shields, guidelines for their use vary between governmental agencies and professional societies and little research is available regarding their efficacy.

Source: (ncbi.nlm.nih.gov)

Can I use a face shield instead of a face mask?

According to experts, face shields are not a viable alternative to masks on their own, but they can provide extra protection to other parts of the face when used with a traditional mask.

“Eye protection is good, which you don’t get with a face mask,” said Dr. Daniel Morgan, M.D., a professor of epidemiology and public health and infectious disease at the University of Maryland School of Medicine. “A mask should be worn to cover the mouth and nose.” According to Morgan, there is little data to support the use of face shields without a mask, so they should not be used as a replacement for more traditional face coverings. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) also does not recommend face shields as an alternative to face masks , though does note that “some people may choose to use a this type of shield when sustained close contact with other people is expected.” The CDC says face shields should wrap around the wearer’s face and extend past the chin.

While a face shield can help protect the wearer from large splashes or droplets to the eyes, they usually do not completely cover the sides of the face or under the chin, which leaves room for airborne particles to find their way underneath the shield.

“[Their design] makes them more comfortable, but allows respiratory droplets and small aerosols, possibly containing virus, to escape into the surroundings,” said Dr. Scott Segal, chair of anesthesiology at Wake Forest School of Medicine. “A covering with some ability to trap particles or filter them out is what’s really needed.”

How to select a face shield?

Face shields are meant to be used as barrier protection for the facial area and associated mucous membranes from airborne body fluids (blood, saliva, bronchial secretions, vomit, urine, etc.) expelled as a result of various physiological processes (vomiting, coughing, sneezing, etc.). The selection of the most appropriate face shield model(s) will depend on the circumstances of exposure, other PPE used concurrently, and personal vison needs. Shields with single Velcro or elastic straps tend to be easiest to don and doff; doffing can be accomplished with a single hand. In order to be efficacious, these shields must fit snugly to afford a good seal to the forehead area and also to prevent slippage of the device. Visors manufactured from acetate, propionate, and polycarbonate offer improved visual clarity and optical quality with the potential for less eye strain. Face shields should be selected that have visors treated for anti-glare, anti-static, and anti-fogging properties. For improved protection from infectious agents, these shields should be, at a minimum, full face length with outer edges of the shield reaching at least to the point of the ear, include chin and forehead protectors, and cover the forehead. Cost-effective considerations include disposable shields vs. reusable models and those that offer replaceable parts.

Face shields are not meant to function as primary respiratory protection and should not be used alone because aerosols can flow behind the visor,  so a protective facemask (medical/surgical mask, N95 FFR, etc.) should be worn concurrently.

Should you get a face shield?

“A face shield is good against the really big stuff [particles] that you can kind of see,” he said. “But as the stuff gets smaller and smaller, it’s just easy for that to go around the shield and be inhaled.” Shields can also be bulkier than masks, said McKnight, making it more uncomfortable for the wearer (and consequently more likely for them to take it off). Keep in mind that shields also don’t meet the criteria for a face covering in all states, so you’ll need to check your local requirements before wearing one in public without a mask.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is a Face Shield?

An item of personal protective equipment (PPE), aims to protect the wearer’s entire face (or part of it) from hazards such as flying objects and road debris, chemical splashes (in laboratories or in industry), or potentially infectious materials (in medical and laboratory environments).

How do face shields work?

Curved plastic that protects your eyes or face from infection. They are typically used by healthcare workers for certain procedures where “splash or splatter is likely,” as is the case when a dentist performs a teeth cleaning, explains David McKnight , MD, a clinical professor in primary care and population health at Texas A&M University. Shields are also often used for safety in hardware and home improvement projects. They do not prevent spread of COVID-19 , but can help reduce transmission. They can block large particulates from getting into your eyes and mouth, said McKnight.

Should you get a face shield?

Face shields can be an additional layer of protection against COVID-19, along with wearing a face mask, practicing safe social distancing and washing your hands regularly. Shields do not replace face masks, as they do not fit to your face and effectively block respiratory droplets from the air around you, said Suyama. Experts agree the shields should be worn only with a face mask, not on their own.

“Most shields do not cover the mouth and nose well enough to trap particles that wearers expel,” said Kathryn Jacobsen , a professor in global health epidemiology at George Mason University. “Face shields also usually do not have filters that reduce the risk of the user breathing in viral particles.” For the record, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention does not recommend shields for everyday activities as a substitute for cloth face coverings, as it’s unknown if they actually provide protection. A 2014 study in the Journal of Occupational and Environmental Hygiene did find face shields reduced exposure to inhaling cough droplets by up to 96 percent. But the author, William Lindsley, a research biomedical engineer at the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health, previously told NBC News cloth masks do a better job protecting you against a virus.

“A face shield is good against the really big stuff [particles] that you can kind of see,” he said. “But as the stuff gets smaller and smaller, it’s just easy for that to go around the face shield and be inhaled.” Shields can also be bulkier than masks, said McKnight, making it more uncomfortable for the wearer (and consequently more likely for them to take it off).
