During an interview with ABC News on Wednesday, Dr. Fauci advised Americans to wear “eye protection” such as goggles or eye shields to protect themselves from COVID-19.
“If you have goggles or an eye shield, you should use it,” Fauci said. “It’s not universally recommended, but if you really want to be complete, you should probably use it if you can.”

Perhaps Fauci is following the Peruvian model as passengers riding on the Lima Metro rapid transit system have to wear face shields beginning last week.
Mandatory face shields. Now endorsed by Fauci, and coming to a city near you! https://t.co/OcQE1niSu6

Will America see a sudden increase in people wearing goggles and protective eyewear in public, and will stores and governments begin mandating eye shields next?
The internet has a running bet on how long until eye protection is mandated.
Goggles now being “recommended” by doctors on top of face masks.
How long before we see mandatory disposable glove orders?

The mandatory goggles are coming.
And we all know, from the Simpsons, that they do nothing. pic.twitter.com/p3HUhRA4Zc

Most not wearing masks do so because they do not believe it will save others. Have you been wearing a mask every flu season? Why aren't you wearing goggles too? In fact, why don't you never leave your home again? After all, it might "save others." Don't you care about life?

Will believe it when I see it. Mandatory gloves and goggles probably be compulsory by the end of August

Fauci is now "recommending" goggles. It will be mandatory in 3 months. This will never end. When do we get to take the masks off?

Expect to wear gloves and goggles soon as it becomes winter and mandatory for public transport or going shopping😀😁

Face masks are a sign of submission and preparation for what Fauci calls “veil of immunity” — vaccines.
