Transparent face shields of the sort used by hospital doctors and nurses should be used by teachers, transport workers and retail workers, according to a new report.

The paper, published by the Tony Blair Institute for Global Change (IGC), says face visors can be used to help lift lockdown, open schools and get Britain back to work.

It advises that visors, like face masks, be used by the public to mitigate the risk of infection where two-metre social distancing is not possible.

"Face shields can be very useful tools for those facing very regular contact, at close proximity, with others", say the authors.

"They also have great value in professions requiring nonverbal communication, such as teaching. They could be very valuable in giving protection and confidence to teachers, enabling them to return to a classroom environment.

"For this reason we recommend that face shields are procured and supplied to key groups such as teachers… [and] transport workers.

"Their use should also be encouraged in private sector settings such as retail, leisure and hospitality". 12.06.2020

Reporting in the April 29 Journal of the American Medical Association, experts led by Dr. Eli Perencevich, of the university's department of internal medicine, and the Iowa City VA Health Care System, said the face shield's moment may have come.

While the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention began advocating the use of cloth masks to help stop COVID-19 transmission in April, laboratory testing "suggests that cloth masks provide [only] some filtration of virus-sized aerosol particles."

According to Perencevich's group, "face shields may provide a better option."

Shields have a number of advantages over masks, they added. First of all, they are endlessly reusable, simply requiring cleaning with soap and water or common disinfectants. Shields are usually more comfortable to wear than masks, and they form a barrier that keeps people from easily touching their own faces.

When speaking, people sometimes pull down a mask to make things easier -- but that isn't necessary with a face shield. And "the use of a face shield is also a reminder to maintain social distancing, but allows visibility of facial expressions and lip movements for speech perception," the authors pointed out.

And what about the ability of a face shield to prevent coronavirus transmission?

According to the Iowa team, large-scale studies haven't yet been conducted. But "in a simulation study, face shields were shown to reduce immediate viral exposure by 96% when worn by a simulated health care worker within 18 inches of a cough."

"When the study was repeated at the currently recommended physical distancing distance of 6 feet, face shields reduced inhaled virus by 92%," the authors said.
