At this point, we should all be pretty used to wearing a face mask or at least some form of acceptable facial coverings when we’re out in public to protect ourselves and others from the Coronavirus. However, full face, transparent facial shields that add a little extra protection to your cloth covering can help give you extra protection against contracting, and spreading germs when in public spaces. These clear protective shields kind of resemble a visor, except they cover up not only your nose and mouth but also your eyes and the rest of your face to help you prevent touching it all day—and we all know that keeping our paws off of our mug is kind of a challenge—or is that just me?

While not mandatory at this point, they are thought to give you a leg up when it comes to virus defense, so why not take the extra precaution (along with social and physical distancing protocol, of course) to keep yourself and others safe. Sure, they may not be the chicest “accessories” to ever exist, but they’re undoubtedly functional, and that’s frankly, much more important right now. Aside from being totally transparent, these shields are also available in anti-fog versions, which, as anyone who wears eyewear knows, is a major plus when you’re trying to protect yourself from getting sick and also, you know, see where you’re going. Scroll through below to check out some solid options to add to your current lineup for a little extra defense.
