Due to social distancing and lockdown observed by many countries right now, individuals do not require precautionary measures like masks and gloves if they stay at home. So, Massachusetts has developed a website where any company or individual can donate Personal Protective Equipment to the CommonWealth. Any kind of equipment that is needed for the doctors would be accepted and people are being encouraged to help the staff as they are on the front line of this war.

So if you would like to donate, here are some of the essentials that the hospitals in Massachusetts require right now.

● N95/N99 masks (respirators).

● Surgical/procedure masks.

● Facemasks with integrated shields.

● Powered Air-Purifying Respirators (PAPR).

● Goggles.

● Gloves.

● Protective suits/gowns.

● Booties/shoe covers.

● Headcovers.

● Hand sanitizer.

● Sanitizing wipes.

“We have a constant demand and need for personal protective equipment (PPE) available to our medical, first responder and essential service communities. Over the past week, hundreds of deliveries of PPE have been made to front line health care providers, and first responders, but we need so much more,” said Secretary of Health and Human Services Marylou Sudders who is requesting individuals and billionaire companies to play their part in assisting the paramedics.
