Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) has become one of the largest needs across our state during the COVID-19 pandemic. NCDHHS and the NC Department of Public Safety understand organizations across North Carolina are in need of PPE and state government is actively working to help get PPE to those who need it.

 

State leadership has put together a process for fulfillment of requests for PPE. In developing this process, the state is trying to make sure that those at highest risk of severe clinical disease and workers delivering emergent life-saving services are receiving the PPE they need. This process addresses three groups of prioritization for receiving PPE. In order of priority, those groups are: 

  • Group 1: Acute and Long-Term Care 
  • Group 2: Congregate Care Settings and Health Care/First Responder Agencies 
  • Group 3: Non-Health Care Entities.
