PPE INITIATIVE.

Partnerships for distributing face masks and
coordinating statewide Community PPE
Hubs for COVID-19 response.

RESPONDING TO PPE NEEDS

IDENTIFYING PPE GAPS

With a worldwide shortage of Personal Protective Equipment (PPE), the community rallied together to provide face masks to healthcare and frontline workers. However, another group of essential workers, such as those providing social services, had a critical need for PPE that was unmet.
