From Prusa 3D:
The medical supply shortage is global and everyone with a 3D printer can help! 3D printing communities across the world became a massive driving force in the effort to produce protective wear for those who need it the most.
This is why the design of the shields is fully open-source, anyone can produce it and/or modify it. Also, the shields are made from easily accessible and inexpensive materials. We would like to ask you to help us by spreading the word or even joining the collective endeavor - as a community, we can help thousands of people in need.
Reach out to institutions in your local area and ask them if they could use some additional protective wear (chances are they definitely could!). It’s not only about hospitals and other first responders like police officers and firemen, but also nursing homes, dentists, or just grocery store staff - simply put, you could offer your help to all those who now have to stay in the service or be in contact with many other people in the time of crisis.

BETTER SAFE THAN SORRY
BEFORE YOU START PRINTING, THERE'S A COUPLE THINGS TO KEEP IN MIND...
While assembling the shields, be extremely careful, use a face mask and gloves. In other words: act as if you are infected! Consult the personnel you are making the shields for, they could give you advice regarding additional precautions!
Consult in advance the means of collecting and distributing the shields safely - avoid spoiling your hard work by e.g. insufficient protection during transport.
Use the design as it is, or improve it however you like. Make sure that the changes and improvements are based on a real-life experience of those, who use these shields.
