Ideas to help a friend go back to retail work

by calvinstreeting

hi all makers :)

I have a question about face masks from a friend who works in catering retail.

he says the hardest part of having a face mask on is being herd by customers, and if we think about it he has a standard face mask, then a visor, and a plastic screen in front of him so to be heard by the customer, he has to shout, and all that plastic just bounces back the sound (and gives them a headache), and like wise he has to hear through all that when the customer speaks (also headache inducing).

I dare say this is not helpful for hard of hearing people, who also have to lip read to fully understand what is being said.

i wonder what ideas people have (my first thought was Bluetooth headset and speaker/mic on other side of plastic, or a text to speech system.

Its definitely something to think about.

Many thanks

Face mask for deeply impaired children

by Pat198

It isn't easy to work with deeply impaired children. Some of them rely on the facial emotions. When we use a mask all the emotions are hidden.
I am searching for an open mask. A mask with some kind of little plastic window to allow facial expressions. I found a really good try: (https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:4311590), but i think it can be designed better. More open, easier to print and maybe with a less aggressive look.
Any ideas ?
I added some pictures of textile masks.
