Do you own a face shield?

My mother-in-law once told me that she would give me a face shield. I just use a surgical mask and I have not tried wearing a face shield. But in the news, the government is urging us to wear it. I think it is pretty uncomfortable. lol. That all I need is a sword. Well, if there is no choice, I will definitely put this on.

Looking at the scary situation around, I am too planning to get one. I am sure it would be quite uncomfortable. Here they have provided to all cleaning workers and store people in our premise.

@Janet357 More than discomfort it is the fear and panic that is killing us.

Our Health Authorities said that a face shield is not at all effective to protect against the virus, only the appropriate mask helps.

@Janet357 It gives less protection than a medical mask and eyeglasses and it is more uncomfortable.

The authorities are really showing their stupidity. First, they said no need for face mask. Second, they said wear face mask. Now they want us to wear face shield. Those guys in the IATF seem to be nincompoops.

Well they're indeed uncomfortable to wear because we are not used to, on the bright side they protect us from getting the virus and the people who already have it from speeding it! I can't wait for one day not having to wear the face mask! Totally get you!

Nope! I tried wearing one and it was even hotter than wearing a mask. And just a mask is hot enough! I will stick to my mask with two layers of cotton and a filter in between them.

i think it is not compulsory to use a face shield unless you are in close contact with a person afflicted with the virus.

I don't have, I only use mask and protection goggles to cover my face when I go outside, I don't know why I think it's not so safe to use face shield, many spaces inside.

Since I have used it for 3 months let me clear it. Above mentioned mask doesn't help you to get away from that virus. It just avoid spreading your splits on others. Above shown image are fashion designer kit and nothing else. And these fashion designer masks keeps your cheek area irritated. You will have sweating and with sweating you will have rashes if you wear it for too long. We had to wear it for 14 hours when we used to go at work. N95 mask usually keep you bit safe (not 90%) but it does because of material it is made up of. We get this when you ask for face shield.

I totally agree. I sweat a lot when I use a mask and the air is being recycled. you cannot breathe some fresh air.

Some people working in certain capacities need the face shields, but they also wear masks under them.

I had heard that the masks worked better than the shield alone, and that you should use both. Nothing is very comfortable any more.

Yes mask is necessary. The face shields have air on the sides. Unless it's closed. I would use the mask. Especially cotton is better for me. They sell them almost everywhere
