How well do face shields work for COVID 19?
There is evidence that wearing a face shield (with a mask) helps protect wearers from respiratory droplets that could come in contact with the eyes. However, there have been no complete studies comparing mask use alone to face shields alone, so it is not recommended to use a face shield as the only protection against COVID-19.
