Aerosol box for intubation/extubation?

Anyone using ‘aerosol box’ for intubation and/or extubation?
Thoughts? Yes or no? Safe to use ? Are you leaving the box on top of patients for a period of time prior to cleaning it? Are you taking it off right away ?
Is it easy to maneuver glidescope/ett ?
Would you use or avoid it in a difficult airway ?

I have not use Aerosol box but one of my critical care physician friend who works at Mayo Clinic recommend to use clear plastic drape with airway valve to prevent virus transmission. According to their experience its easier to maneuver than box in case of using glidoscope or difficult airway adjuncts. At our institution we haven’t started using either box or drape yet.
