I was in a shop earlier and saw one of the maddest ‘masks’ yet. the woman at the till was wearing something that looked like one of the face-shield things, except smaller, and instead of being propped against her brow, face-shield-style, it was instead propped up away from her face by a little strap thing on her chin. It’s difficult to describe, but imagine upside-down tiny face-shield just covering her mouth and nose, but not touching them. it was so bizarre. and, I can only assume, useless in any practical sense.
You know those face visor things. The ones that I've seen described many times as being "worse than useless." Why hasn't there been strong messaging to discourage their use/educate on better options?
my current theory is that they're intended for people preparing or serving food (in a non-pandemic context) so that they don't cough/dribble all over whatever they're making.
