The state is currently accepting PPE requests from the state PPE Backstop through Oct. 31, 2021
. From the DOH website:
The state personal protective equipment (PPE) backstop has been available to help support state agencies, counties, tribes and other partners through the COVID-19 pandemic. As the state transitions into this next phase of the response to COVID-19, we are working to get PPE staged at the local level, where it is most useful.
The state backstop will be available to meet COVID-19 PPE requests through Oct. 31, 2021.
Now is the time to submit requests for PPE to the state backstop. State, local, and tribal agencies, partner associations, health care providers and businesses are encouraged to order PPE to return state backstops to pre-COVID levels and allow entities to utilize existing, available PPE before it expires. Organizations are able to order up to a 90-day supply of PPE from the state backstop.
After Oct. 31, availability of PPE from the state backstop and the process for ordering will change. These future processes are currently under development and will be communicated to partners broadly.
