PPE and Non-Medical Supplies Available
This page was updated on August 4, 2020.
The Washington County Emergency Operations Center (EOC) is providing medical-grade personal protective equipment (PPE) and non-medical supplies to eligible organizations to help slow the spread of COVID-19. Medical-grade PPE includes N95 respirators, procedural masks, face masks, medical gloves and gowns. Non-medical supplies include disposable single-use face coverings (KN95 respirators), reusable cloth face coverings and hand sanitizer.
Who can request supplies?
Eligibility requirements described below may change depending on disease prevention and control objectives; availability of supplies through routine vendors; and availability of state and federal supplies. If your organization is not currently eligible to receive supplies, please check back regularly to see if our policies have been updated.
Medical PPE: Nonprofit health care providers, EMS providers, and organizations that assist individuals with their activities of daily living (ADL) such as assisted living facilities, adult and child foster care homes and in-home care providers may request these supplies. These groups must provide direct care to COVID-19 positive, COVID-19 symptomatic or high-risk populations.
Disposable single-use face coverings and hand sanitizer: Cities, special districts, business recovery centers, chambers of commerce, community-based organizations and community groups may request these supplies.
Disposable single-use face coverings are KN95 respirators the FDA rejected for medical use. These respirators are not medical-grade PPE and should only be used as single-use disposable face coverings.
Cloth face coverings: Any nonprofit organization or community group that serves or supports marginalized communities or high-risk populations may request these.
Not eligible? For those not eligible to request supplies from the EOC, you can find PPE providers here. Washington County does not endorse any of the businesses listed.
Activities of Daily Living: Personal functional activities that are essential for health, safety and continued well-being, such as bathing, personal hygiene, dressing, grooming, eating, elimination (toileting), mobility, or transfers.
Marginalized communities: Communities whose demographic, geographic or economic characteristics (including houselessness) harm or prevent access to health care services, and that experience discrimination and exclusion (social, political and economic) because of unequal power relationships across economic, political, social and cultural dimensions. Includes LGBTQIA, older adults, persons with a disability, refugees and immigrants, and any group that is societally, socially or economically disadvantaged and is considered a protected class by federal or state law.
High-risk population: People ages 65 and older or of any age with underlying medical conditions such as cancer, chronic kidney disease, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, sickle cell disease, immunocompromised, obesity, serious heart conditions or Type 2 diabetes.
