Wondering how football players will keep from spreading Covid-19 this upcoming season? I am too.
The Oakley Mouth Shield is the answer. It’s a product designed by Oakley in collaboration with doctors and engineers from the NFL, to mitigate the spread of the coronavirus on the field. It’s expected to be distributed to all 32 teams over the next week.
The Oakley Prizm Lens Technology used by skiers, military personnel, and, most recently, NFL players for enhanced color and contrast in their visors are featured in the new design. Plastic sheets extend down and attach to the faceguard. There are airways and openings on the mouth shield but none that allow the direct transmission of droplets, according to the chair of the NFL’s engineering committee, Dr. Jeff Crandall.
