They certainly are, I feel it's a lot more difficult to communicate with clients with all this PPE on as well, good luck tomorrow 😩😩

You have to wear a mask which you cannot remove and replace casually during your shift. The guidelines don’t say whether a screen substitutes for a visor. I’m sure this is an oversight.

I have just bought a tilting podiatry screen which I was planning to use instead of a visor for facial services so I have been dismayed by these guidelines.

So today was the first day with mask, visor and glasses, struggled with the fog on the glasses ? Quite impossible to perform electrolysis, any tips ? Have tried tissue, anti fog spray and washing in soap and water.

Yes, make sure that the metal wire in your mask is really well moulded to your nose and cheeks, so that the air goes out of the side of your mask, not the top. Also, it’s better to use a shield that has a gap at the top to let the warm air out

Oh, and also I have tried a few different masks and shields over the past few weeks and the one that is most comfortable with is the type that is like a pair of glasses- check out minarelo face shields, although there are many companies selling the same thing.
