Background During the COVID-19 pandemic there has been heated discussion about whether the public should wear face coverings to protect others or themselves. Face coverings are masks of various grades and face shields (called visors in UK). Face shield (visor) use has not been promoted for the public in England. On 5 th June 2020, the government has told the public that they must wear a face covering at all times on public transport or when attending hospitals as a visitor or outpatient. There is also a recommendation to wear a face covering in other enclosed public spaces where social distancing is not possible and meeting strangers. Literature has been dominated by mask discussion and we wanted to ascertain public view on face shield use as an alternative.
