ANTI-VIRUS MASK, FACE SHIELD REQUIRED IN ALL PUBLIC AREAS

The use of anti-virus masks and full face shields is now mandatory, Malacañang said on Tuesday, as authorities sought to prevent a potential holiday surge of COVID-19 cases.

The public was previously only required to wear face masks and shields in malls and enclosed spaces.

The Department of Health earlier recommended the wearing of face shields on top of face masks particularly in crowded places as this is seen to lower the risk of virus transmission by as much as 96 percent.

“Sa pagsuot ng face shield ay maiiwasan natin na makuha ang respiratory droplets mula sa ibang tao. Ang face shield po ang magsisilbing karagdagang proteksyon mula sa virus,” Health Undersecretary Maria Rosario Vergeire said Friday.
