How Good Are Face Shields for Preventing Respiratory Infections?
Discussion A scoping review of facial protection for health care workers during a pandemic found that respirators such as N95 masks provide excellent protection against viruses and aerosols especially when combined with eye protection. Mask fit is an important consideration and respirators are tight fitting and therefore much less breathable and comfortable to wear for long periods of time. Surgical masks do not provide as much protection as respirators but are in general more breathable and more comfortable. Surgical masks also provide much more protection than no mask or improvised masks. Improvised masks do provide some...

Five months after coronavirus took root in the U.S., face masks remain one of the most controversial and confusing parts of the pandemic. Changing public-health messaging hasn’t helped. In March, when personal protective equipment (PPE) was running short, top U.S. public-health officials told Americans that the general public did not need masks because they don’t fully block respiratory particles that spread COVID-19, such as those in a sick person’s cough or sneeze. Most masks are best at preventing particles from getting into the air where others might inhale them, so, at first, the U.S. Centers for Dis...
