To assist hospitals in addressing the unprecedented challenges of omicron, the statewide logistics task force has authorized all health care providers and emergency medical services (EMS) responders to request a 30-day sustainment supply of personal protective equipment (PPE) from the state’s inventory.
This 30-day supply may be used to replenish stockpiles or used in daily operations. Health care providers and EMS responders may request this 30-day supply irrespective of the current state of commercial supply chains.
This is a one-time initiative planned to end on Feb. 28. The types of PPE authorized from the state inventory include:
- Procedural masks
- BYD N95 masks
- Face shields
- Hand sanitizer (16.9 ounces per bottle size only)
- Nitrile gloves (medium, large, and XL only)
- Disinfecting wipes (400 count and 80 count)
Please contact your medical health operational area coordinator to request the allocation, as well as to determine their allocation procedure.
