While face shields can provide some protection against droplets and airborne particles, they are not a substitute for a face mask. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommends that people wear a cloth face covering (mask) that covers the nose and mouth when in public settings where social distancing measures are difficult to maintain.
Here are some reasons why a face shield is not a suitable alternative to a face mask for your toddler:
A face shield does not offer as much protection as a face mask, as it does not provide a barrier for the nose and mouth.
A face shield does not filter out small particles like a face mask does.
A face shield can fog up, making it difficult for your toddler to see.
A face shield can become contaminated with germs if touched or not properly cleaned.
A face shield may not be as effective at preventing the spread of germs if your toddler removes it frequently or touches their face while wearing it.
In summary, it is recommended that your toddler face mask when in public settings where social distancing measures are difficult to maintain. Face shields can be used in addition to a face mask for added protection, but should not be used as a substitute for a face mask.
