KPRC 2 Houston Texas asked Alison Haddock, MD, with Baylor College of Medicine for her advice and view on face shields.
“I think face shields are a good alternative to masks in a situation and for people for whom masks might be a bit of a challenge,” Haddock explained. “Especially for people who may have hearing difficulties and need to see faces and facial expressions, face shields can be a good option.” She mentioned people with sensory issues may also prefer shields. “You want to take it off carefully and also probably consider your hands to be contaminated. Take it off and wipe this down with an antiseptic wipe if you have one, or if you don’t have that use soap and water in the sink. Make sure you wash your hands very thoroughly afterward as well,” she said.
