This supplementary face shield was created as an emergency action in effort to protect people
by providing backup Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) options if the standard PPE has
become unavailable. This device has not gone through the same regulatory approval process as
standard PPE but has gone through a special verification process expedited strictly for the
response to the COVID-19 pandemic.
The use of this supplementary face shield should always come secondary to existing PPE
equipment, standards, and protocol options if available. The decision to implement this device
should be made with careful consideration and under the consultation of the corresponding
institution’s occupational health and infection control departments.
