Filipinos told to wear face shields

The government plans to require the public to wear face shields as an additional precautionary measure against COVID-19.

The government's inter-agency task force (IATF), which formulates policies on the pandemic response, is studying making face shields a requirement for Filipinos going out of their homes, Trade Secretary Ramon Lopez said.

"Ito yung isa pang kinoconsider ng IATF na iencourage na rin ang ating mga kababayan as an extra step para po lumakas ang prevention, ang maiwasan ang transmission," Lopez said in a virtual press briefing.


"Hindi pa ho yan nirerequire ngayon but in the future baka i-require na natin kung kailanganin pa natin mag extra protection," Lopez added.

So far, the government only requires its citizens to wear face masks in public places.

The proposed wearing of face shields is on top of the mandatory wearing of face masks in public places.

"Aside sa mga mask, inencourage din po natin yung pagsusuot ng face shield," Lopez added.

Presidential Spokesperson Harry Roque earlier said that the wearing of face shields is recommended in Metro Manila and the Southern Tagalog Region (Calabarzon), both of which are under general community quarantine.
