Ever since the COVID-19 pandemic began, we have all been searching for ways to help prevent the spread of the virus.
This has involved following government advice, adhering to guidelines and using our common sense to avoid potential scenarios where the virus could be transmitted from one person to another.
This initially meant avoiding all contact with anybody outside of our household. But as our understanding of the virus, how it is transmitted, and the importance of getting the economy moving again has increased, new ways to allow life to continue have been found.
This is all with the caveat of ensuring that space is maintained, and the risk of spreading the virus is kept as low as possible.
One way this is being achieved is with protection screens. But how do they work? And where can they be used? Slingsby explains all.
How do protection screens work?
One of the primary ways Coronavirus is spread is through respiratory droplets. Though we may not realise it, when we speak, cough, sneeze and breathe, respiratory droplets leave our mouths and noses. If we have a virus, this can be spread via these droplets.
This is why so much of the focus around preventing the spread of the virus has been on wearing masks and face protection products. Masks help prevent the spread of respiratory droplets, and help stop us inhaling any respiratory droplets released by others.
There are additional steps that can be taken to help prevent the transmission in a practical way. This is where protection screens can play a very important role.
Protection screens help prevent respiratory droplets coming into the vicinity of other people. This helps to lower the chances of spreading the virus, and allows for safer environments to be created.
This is particularly advantageous in scenarios where wearing a mask for a long period of time may not be pleasant or possible. For example, in stores or warehouses, a mask may not be pleasant for members of staff to wear continuously during long shifts. But a protective screen can do a similar job without any discomfort or difficulty.
