Face coverings or masks are superior to visors as a measure for prevention of transmission of COVID-19
The HSE would like to remind everyone that cloth face coverings or masks are superior to visors as a measure for prevention of transmission of COVID-19. Expert opinion and international guidance indicates that cloth face coverings or masks are more effective than visors.
There is evidence that visors reduce exposure to droplets to a certain extent compared with no face covering. They may be an alternative in certain limited circumstances including:
-People with breathing difficulties
-People who are unable to remove masks/face coverings without help
-Anyone with particular needs who may feel upset or very uncomfortable wearing the mask/face covering
-In settings where people who have learning difficulties or hard of hearing or deaf are present.
