More and more research is coming out supporting the fact that virus droplets entering through eyes are most likely contributing to the virus spread.

“With face shields, you can reuse them indefinitely and they’re easily cleaned with soap and water or other household disinfectants,” Krutika Kuppalli, an infectious diseases physician and vice chair of the IDSA Global Health Committee said.
Last month we published the face shield FAQs that explain in detail the cleaning process, storage, and general questions about how to take care of the face shield for its longevity.
