Face Shields Are the New Face Mask, Says The Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA)

As the world begins to reopen, many people still have questions about how to prevent a resurgence of the Coronavirus and protect their employees, customers, and communities. According to a recent article by The Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA), face shields should be a part of every business's reopening strategy.

"Face shields should be included as part of strategies to safely and significantly reduce transmission in the community setting," states JAMA. "Now is the time for adoption of this practical intervention."

Face shields have been cited as being more effective than the common face masks many are wearing, reducing the direct viral transmission of Coronavirus by 96% according to recent studies. Once only available to medical personnel, they are now available to non-essential employees and business owners through Franzen Graphics. A company based in the U.S., Franzen Graphics has expanded its production of affordable face shields to make them available to everyone in need and reduce the reliance on foreign providers.

Not only can face shields be more effective than face masks at preventing the transmission of the virus, but they also are easier to disinfect and reuse, they are recyclable, easier to breathe in, and prevent the wearer from touching their face. According to the medical professionals who wrote the article for JAMA, face shields could be the solution to reducing transmission below a critical threshold while more long-lasting solutions are found.
