The ADA is recommending face shields and masks be used when treating patients, in addition to a mask, “to protect mucous membranes of the eyes, nose, and mouth during procedures likely to generate splashing or spattering [(large droplets)] of blood or other body fluids.” (ADA, quoted from https://www.cdc.gov/mmwr/PDF/rr/rr5217.pdf)
