Face shields assist in providing eye protection, but don't seem to be the same as masks when it involves protection from droplets. However, for people who experience difficulties putting on a non-medical mask or people with cognitive, respiratory, or hearing impairments, for instance, face shields are considered as an alternative.

 If you decide on using one, confirm it covers the edges of your face and below your chin. This will make sure that you are protected enough by the face shield and achieve its main objective: to protect one from the droplets of covid19. Also, people around you will be safe from any potential droplet.
