I've changed from wearing a mask to wearing a face shield - the difference is amazing!!! So much more comfortable! I wear varifocal glasses, so I was forever misting up no matter what I did to them. If I tucked the mask under the bottoms then yes, they didn't mist so badly, but I couldn't actually see!!

Now I'm using a shield, it is comfortable, no misting, I can see AND I feel safe! Wish I'd bought one of these at the start!

I was in a pub having lunch on Friday and the waitress was wearing a mask.
She looked comfortable wearing it and for me more pleasant conversing with than someone wearing a mask.

Maybe a shield is the the way to go ?

The only problem is that shields don't offer the same level of protection as masks...

Really? Surely the virus can't get through the shield, whereas they can with most masks! (Especially the way some people wear them!). I am still keeping my distance from others and washing my hands regularly!

Pops right under that shield

.. and out. They offer less protection on their own and if you do wear one then itís recommended you wear a mask also.

Don't worry Karen, the face mask offer little real protection. Open at edges allowing air to pass, perhaps less than a shield but still passes.
If I was risk assessing both types to lab standards use I'd bin them as useless, especially when male users have beards and/or stubble.....See you over grumpy group in 5mins WinkSmile

However yes I do, if I absolutely cannot avoid the situation, wear one simple to avoid a potential fine.

Not a cartoon, the words of Jenny Harries a qualifies respected individual;

"The evidence on face coverings 'is not very strong in either direction', England's deputy chief medical officer has said, leaving Britons confused once again over experts' changing attitudes to masks."

Unfortunately, a Karen has come to mean something different these days, but I'm sure it's not about you personally. Grin

Karen
Karen is a pejorative term used in the English-speaking world for someone perceived as entitled or demanding beyond the scope of what is appropriate or necessary. A common stereotype is that of a white woman who uses her privilege to demand her own way at the expense of others.

This is a good visualisation from an virologist, no one measure alone is enough when it comes to reducing spread of a virus. Different countries seem to be adopting different "layers". For such a worrying time I do find some of this really interesting, I read a superb thread about vaccines the other day.. alot of it went over my head but interesting none the less!
