As the coronavirus pandemic continues, LW Scientific understands the urgent need to prevent the COVID-19 virus from spreading among our frontline medical community. To this end, we have developed a face shield to protect at-risk healthcare workers.
The availability of face masks currently is at a critical low, and the use of homemade masks is becoming the norm in settings where traditional masks are unavailable. Because the capability of homemade masks to protect healthcare practitioners is unknown, the CDC suggests using face shields in combination with homemade masks to maximize protection for the user.
To meet the urgent need for additional PPE, LW Scientific has begun using our manufacturing capabilities to produce as many face shields as our capacity allows. We are committed to doing our part to protect our critical medical community during this unprecedented global pandemic.
