Adding a Face shield can reduce your risk of a CoVid infection up to 88%. This the conclusion of a 500 bed Texas hospital that studied its own staff and CoVid patients.
They surveyed the incidence of CoVid infections among their 6500+ clinical employees before and after the addition of face shields to their other PPE including N95 face masks, goggles, and gowns. The infection rate decreased from 22.9% to 2.7% for the clinicians after they donned the shields. For patients, the infection rate fell from 8.4 to 1.7 per 1000 days, an 80% drop.
WithCoVid rates rising, consider adding a face shield. You may even be able to eat under it.
