Wholesale Face Shields
Face shields are an essential component to a comprehensive set of personal protective equipment (PPE) in certain circumstances, such as for medical professionals and others who are at an increased rate of exposure to the COVID-19 virus. However, finding a reliable source of wholesale face shields and visors has proven to be difficult for a variety of consumers, and some of the information surrounding the usefulness or applications for these shields has been misleading or confused.

Is a Face Shield An Important Piece of Personal Protective Equipment?
There is a lot of information going around about different essential pieces of personal protective equipment for the general public and medical professionals alike, but the reality is that there are some specific use cases where a face shield is much more important than others.
The World Health Organization suggests face shields as effective PPE for healthcare workers providing direct care to COVID-19 patients, since they are in direct and ongoing contact with infected patients and should be utilizing every possible measure available to reduce their risk of direct exposure.
However, according to The Centre for Evidence-Based Medicine, a part of the University of Oxford:
“There is no direct evidence from randomised trials that eye protection equipment alone prevents transmission of COVID-19. Indirect evidence suggests that healthcare workers’ conjunctivae could be exposed to infective droplets and aerosols from patients during close contact. It is important to assess contagion risk of every encounter and take appropriate precautions Where close contact is required, guidance for full personal protective equipment should be followed.”
This information is essential for those who are considering their options for PPE, especially when trying to determine the efficacy of the measures that they are utilizing. When used as a part of an overall set of protective equipment, eye protection such as a face visor can play a significant role in limiting exposure; however, eye protection alone is shown to have little to no effectiveness. This is why it is so important that medical workers are able to get access to all of the necessary equipment, such as N95 respirators, face shields, surgical face masks, eye protection, medical gowns, and more.
Does the General Public Need Face Shields?
According to the CDC in an announcement about the importance of face masks while in public:
“We now know from recent studies that a significant portion of individuals with coronavirus lack symptoms (“asymptomatic”) and that even those who eventually develop symptoms (“pre-symptomatic”) can transmit the virus to others before showing symptoms. This means that the virus can spread between people interacting in close proximity — for example, speaking, coughing, or sneezing — even if those people are not exhibiting symptoms. In light of this new evidence, CDC recommends wearing cloth face coverings in public settings where other social distancing measures are difficult to maintain (e.g., grocery stores and pharmacies) especially in areas of significant community-based transmission.”
However, the CDC is not suggesting that the general public wear face masks, as they are not shown to be effective unless used as part of a comprehensive strategy.
