Tracking PPE Distribution

PPE Data

Current as of 4 p.m. June 1, 2020

This data provides a snapshot in time only.

Washington is currently experiencing the greatest challenges obtaining the following items:

  • NIOSH N95 masks

  • Powered air purifying respirators (PAPR), and PAPR filters and hood

Purchases

Purchases are the primary way the state has secured PPE, accounting for about 87 percent of items received so far - a percentage that is growing. Donations make up about 5 percent of PPE received. New purchase orders are placed nearly every day. Arrival time for orders can range from days to weeks.

To date:

  • $419 million worth of PPE ordered.

  • $26 million of PPE ordered has arrived, been paid for, and has been distributed or is being processed for distribution, up from about $22 million last week.
