PPE for Child Care

View as Webpage

The Department of Health (DOH), Department of General Services (DGS), and Pennsylvania Emergency Management Agency (PEMA) are collaborating to right-size the current PPE stockpile for future COVID-19 and public health emergency purposes, and to ensure partners have sufficient quantities of PPE to protect against a likely fall/winter resurgence of COVID-19.

To that end, partners are encouraged to request PPE through this formThese resources are intended to support organizations for current or future COVID-19 protection, or other associated purposes (including training purposes) and are available at no cost to the recipient. These resources are NOT permitted to be used to offset normal operational costs for the procurement of PPE.

Please note that while you will be able to indicate requested quantities and size preferences, requests for specific brands/styles of products in the following categories will not be accommodated:

  • N95 masks
  • Surgical masks
  • Isolation gowns
  • Face shields
  • Nitrile gloves
  • Hand sanitizer
  • Sanitizing wipes

Depending on how quickly you intend to use these resources, you may request to be sent “long dated” materials (expiration dates >6 months), “short dated” materials (expiration >1 month but <6 months), or recently expired materials if they are to be used for non-healthcare and/or training purposes that do not involve human contact. Organizations receiving recently expired materials must complete the attached waiver and submit to prior to receipt of PPE. Facilities are encouraged to request the shortest timeline product that can be used by their site.

Also, please ensure that you are able to effectively manage all PPE shipped to your site. Shipping will only be full cases of product (more information can be found in the request form), and orders of 10-12 cases or more will likely come on a pallet requiring loading dock or delivery by liftgate truck. It is the responsibility of your facility to ensure that you can receive and store all product you request.

This survey will be kept open and orders will be filled on a first-come, first-served basis through at least October 2022. Please email if you have any questions about this program. Thank you.
