Are face shields acceptable by themselves?
- No, a face shield must be accompanied by a face mask since a face shield is primarily used for eye protection for the person wearing it. At this time, it is not known what level of protection a face shield provides to people nearby from the spray of respiratory droplets from the wearer. There is currently not enough evidence to support the effectiveness of face shields for source control. Therefore, the CDC does not currently recommend the use of face shields as a substitute for masks. (source: CDC Face Cover Guidance)
- “Face shield” means a clear plastic shield that covers the forehead, extends below the chin, and wraps around the sides of the face. A face covering must be worn with a face shield
