Helping with the Face Shield Shortage

Thank_you_signMG_7096Face shields are a key piece of equipment for frontline healthcare workers operating in close contact with COVID-19 patients.

They’re essentially plastic, transparent masks that extend fully to cover a wearer’s face.

These are to be used in tandem with N95 and surgical masks, and can protect a healthcare professional from exposure to droplets containing the virus expelled by patients when they cough or sneeze.

Our team at The Deirdre Imus Environmental Health Center secured the resources needed to assemble face shields and have been working with Hackensack University Medical Center team members, every day to help protect our #HealthcareHeroes.
