All airline passengers required to wear face shields when boarding flight

-

- Advertisment -

Following the directive of the Department of Transportation (DOTr) and the Civil Aviation Authority of the Philippines (CAAP), airline passengers shall be required to wear both face masks and face shields when boarding their flight starting August 15, 2020.

“The initiative aims to further reduce the risk of transmitting the coronavirus disease (Covid-19) in public transport facilities as health authorities have pointed out that the use of face shields and masks reduces exposure to and emission of respiratory droplets considerably,” the DOTr said.

Other preventive measures against Covid-19 shall be consistently observed such as social distancing and hand washing or sanitizing.
