Do face shields protect against COVID?


Excited to share our newly published research

showing that use of face shields by health care workers was associated with reduced COVID infections!


Association Between Universal Face Shield in a Quaternary Care Center and Reduction of SARS-COV2 Infections Among Healthcare Personnel and Hospitalized Patients - ScienceDirect



Highlights


SARS-COV2 transmission to healthcare personnel (HCP) and hospitalized patients is a significant challenge


We implemented universal face shield for all healthcare personnel upon entry to facility


Our study showed that universal face shield use was associated with marked reduction in infections among HCP and hospitalized patients



( I wear a face shield when I go to any doctor's appointments and I wore one when I was vaccinated. Glad to see that it makes a difference.)
