Abstract Nonlocal order parameters are constructed in theZ(2) Higgs model to probe the existence or nonexistence of charged states. The nonlocal field corresponding to the Higgs field in a complete gauge fixing is found to be an order parameter for the locally unobservable global gauge symmetry breaking. This symmetry breakdown is shown to imply perfect screening for the bare charge.
