In a world turned upside-down, we are doing whatever we can to keep our loved ones safe and medical professionals healthy. This face shield should only be used as a physical barrier from liquids. It must be used with a medically approved mask, because the shield is not a face mask.
With that in mind, we remind users of these shields (that we are providing free of charge) that you should only use it if, in your professional opinion, it is will help you keep patients' droplets away from your face and eyes.
While we made these masks to help address the immediate shortage of PPE during this pandemic, we also encourage people to dispose of them when dirty. We will make you more. If they do the job of blocking a cough, feel free to reach out to us and we will get you more.
The plastic that we use is much like what is used to hold soda in a 2-liter bottle. So keep that in mind. The shield is not impact resistant, but we suspect that it will keep more of a patients cough off your face than just a mask and a pair of glasses. And that is the point. Also, we recommend that you avoid wearing around flame, as soda bottle plastic tends to melt and smell terrible.
