Face Shields for Hospitals

Homemade face shields, using plastic, foam strips, and elastic bands

Through the COVID-19 crisis, there are many shortages of supplies. Hospitals, who treat these patients, are running low on face masks and face shields, so doctors are at a high risk of contracting COVID-19. Knowing that more doctors are essential in this crisis, it should be the community’s job to keep the doctors safe. The Breaking BEARriers are making face shields for hospitals in the bay area, and you can too! These face shields are simple and easy to make, and are made of basic materials you can find at any craft store. Here is our video on how to make these face shields.

Here is also our standard operating procedures for the facemasks

This is, in fact, our third design. It may take more time to complete compared the previous designs, yet this one is more reusable, and is easier to sanitize after use! Using the hanger strips, it solves the fogging issue we had before as well!

Stay healthy and keep the positivity up!

  5. Hi there! I’m at work surfing around your blog. Just wanted to say I love reading through your blog and look forward to

  6. First of all, I want to say that this is an excellent blog! I had a quick question which I’d like to ask if you don’t mind.
    I was interested to know how you center yourself and clear your mind prior to writing.
    I truly do enjoy writing however it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes are wasted simply just trying to figure out how to begin. Any ideas or hints? Thank you!

    • Hi Anjam!
      Before I write, I often clear my thoughts and fill a writing organizer first. I always try to gather all my thoughts, ideas and try to figure out how to put them all together. Then, I sit down to write. I find that it is easier to build on ideas and correct your own mistakes when you write on paper. This may not be the same as everyone, but working harder, but also smarter, is the most important. Thanks for visiting our website
