How to Wear a Mask Poster  

Alberta Mask Requirements

Face shields do not replace masks or face coverings.

A face shield is used to protect the eyes of the person wearing it. Using a face shield without a mask won’t protect:

  • you from potentially inhaling infectious respiratory droplets exhaled by others
  • others from your infectious respiratory droplets, as they can escape around the face shield

If you’re unable to wear a mask or face covering, you may want to wear a face shield. Choose one that extends around the sides of the face and below the chin. You’ll still need to:

  • maintain physical distancing of 2 metres
  • practise good hand hygiene, especially if you touch the face shield
