Please see the announcement below, and attached, fact sheet from our partners in Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) regarding Addressing PPE Needs in Non-Healthcare Setting.

FEMA has published the attached Coronavirus (COVID-19) Pandemic: Addressing PPE Needs in Non-Healthcare Setting. This guidance summarizes how organizations should consider and manage their personal protective equipment (PPE) needs while ensuring the protection of workers during the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic response, including how to preserve limited supplies of PPE, how to consider need during periods of shortages, and how to acquire and request PPE (i.e., in the face of critical shortages and whereas normal supply chain allocation cannot meet operational requirements).

The attached fact sheet may also be found on the FEMA website here.
