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) 
  • Goggles 
  • Gowns 
  • 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.
