Face Shield vs COVID-19

A shield for the warriors at the cashier counters of supermarkets and other stores. Face shields are personal protective equipment devices that are used by many workers (e.g., medical, dental, veterinary) for protection of the facial area and associated mucous membranes (eyes, nose, mouth) from splashes, sprays, and spatter of body fluids.

How to make?

Packaging Cardboard boxes, Transparent sheets, Elastic bracelet threads, Cutting tools, and a stapler is all you need to make one in 10 minutes at home. If you have a 3D printer, you can also print more durable face shields. Visit this website for the .stl file. Big shoutout to "augment_3di" for bringing this design to my attention 👍

Over the night, I made a template which you can find in the file "FaceShield-DIY.pdf". The document also contains step-by-step instructions needed to build the face shield. Make sure you equip yourself with a pack of sterilized gloves and once built, sanitize the shields with an alcohol-based sanitizer. I could make 10 faceshields which costed me ~7€.

Every neighborhood is bound to have atleast one store, hence such a device could potentially safe the cashiers who help us out with groceries in such hard times.
