Tracking PPE Distribution

PPE Data

This data provides a snapshot in time only.

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.
