Workers now required to wear face shields in workplaces

Face shield is a must for workers starting on Saturday, August 15.

Secretary Silvestre Bello III of the Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE) has issued the order as an additional protection to the workers against the COVID-19. Guideline for certain order is still in the process.

Aside from face masks, all workers are also required to wear face shields in their workplaces. No face shield means no work as any worker who refuses to follow will not be allowed entry on their companies. Employers, on the other hand, will face administrative sanctions in failure to implement the policy.

Bearing in mind that there will be a greater demand for the face shields, the Department of Health (DOH) suggested a retail price for face shields of between ₱26 and ₱50.

The COVID-19 Inter-Agency Task Force (IATF) also warned establishments in Cebu City that they could face closure if found to have violated quarantine protocols.
