“I see people wearing them all over the hospital.😊
The face shields make a big difference, making doctors and nurses feel safe while giving excellent care!”
— A Nurse in Massachusetts

Thanks to all our supporters, helpers, sponsors, and customers
in the chaos of the early pandemic,
in April 2020 uShield.US proudly shipped

32,900 shields in one month

we made a difference in lives of front-line heroes!

What is uShield.US?

uShield.US is a grassroots voluntary effort to supply disposable face shields to protect frontline heroes from COVID-19. To address the shortage of Personal Protective Equipment (PPE), a group of commercial product designers and collaborators are making a supply chain of face shields that can serve workers at high-volume in a clean environment.

The shields add an additional layer of protection over N95 or surgical masks, prolonging the life and use of the limited PPE that is available today. Donations help us provide 1 Box of 100 Face Shields to healthcare facilities unable to purchase face shields. All donations are tax deductible.
