Notes from CDC:

- Wash in-between uses
- Typically, material for these are thin for increased breathability, which means a decreased ability to contain droplets.*
* The Campus Ink Gaiters are made with heavier GSM to contain more droplets.

The Face Shields

Summary:

The face shield is a new alternative that has a mixed bag of reviews for spread prevention. Many people wear shields in addition to masks to protect their eyes.

CDC Says...

It is not known if face shields provide any benefit as source control to protect others from the spray of respiratory particles. CDC does not recommend use of face shields for normal everyday activities or as a substitute for cloth face coverings. Some people may choose to use a face shield when sustained close contact with other people is expected. If face shields are used without a mask, they should wrap around the sides of the wearer’s face and extend to below the chin. Disposable face shields should only be worn for a single use. Reusable face shields should be cleaned and disinfected after each use. Plastic face shields for newborns and infants are NOT recommended.
