Protective Goggles / Glasses
Guarding your eyes — as well as your hands, nose, and mouth — can slow the spread of coronavirus.
While people are hearing about mouth, nose, and hand protection to stay safe from COVID-19, many may be overlooking protection for a key body part—their eyes.
Eye safety is just as important as staying protected in other areas of your body in the time of COVID-19.
“The eyes are an important part of the body to protect because, like the nose and mouth, they are mucous membranes where germs can infect the body,” Ruchman says. “The virus spreads when infected droplets from a sick person’s mouth or nose come in contact with another person’s face, often when they cough, sneeze or talk. Although it’s more likely to be infected by inhaling these droplets through your mouth or nose, they can also enter through your eyes, especially if you touch something that has viral particles on it and then rub your eyes.” see full article
