Personal protective equipment (PPE) has always been important for those in the medical, dental, and veterinary industries, but in the time of COVID-19, it's important for the rest of us, too. By equipping yourself and your employees with clear plastic face shields, you can help put one more layer between yourselves and the coronavirus.
Polycarbonate transparent face shields create a see-through barrier between you and the people you're working with or serving. They are simple, rounded sheets of plastic that are usually attached to protective glasses or a headband, allowing them to sit just in front of your face.

The plastic acts as a sneeze guard, catching any droplets that may come out of your mouth or nose to ensure that your germs don't spread to others. These shields can also protect you to an extent, guarding your eyes and other mucous membrane areas from outside germs.
The most important factor in choosing a face shield is that it protects your entire face. To do this, it needs to sit securely, suspended about half an inch or an inch above your eyebrows. You should choose polycarbonate face shields that either use a headband or attach to protective glasses to fit snugly but comfortably around your head or on your face. An adjustable headband is also a great feature to ensure that each of your employees has a shield that fits properly.
