Tracking PPE Distribution

PPE Data

This data provides a snapshot in time only.

The state has distributed more than 100 million pieces of PPE across Washington.


Purchases are the primary way the state has secured PPE. Donations make up about 2 percent of PPE received. Arrival time for orders can range from days to weeks. For four key PPE items - gloves, gowns, N95 respirators, and surgical masks – state purchases and donations make up more than 98 percent of items received, with Strategic National Stockpile and other federal supplies making up less than 2 percent.
