Masks or Shields? - Kurt - 05-11-2020

Assuming you had to wear one or the other to save all of humanity and they offered equal protection, which would you choose a face mask or a shield?

Here's an example of a shield:

I think I'd prefer a shield in most cases and if you can eat and drink with them on that would be even better. BTW...I've read a couple of articles that think shields may offer more protection against COVID than masks.

Personally, I would prefer a mask for normal everyday activiities and a shield if I were ever kidnapped by aliens and forced to visit a vacuum store. Rolleyes
