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 these types of shields, guidelines for their use vary between governmental agencies and professional societies and little research is available regarding their efficacy.

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. “Facial 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). Keep in mind that face 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.
