The state has distributed more than 180 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 three key PPE items - gloves, gowns, and surgical masks – state purchases and donations make up about 99 percent of items received, with the Strategic National Stockpile and other federal supplies making up less than 1 percent. For a fourth key PPE item, Washington purchased more than 2 million N95 respirators under a cost-sharing agreement with FEMA, bringing numbers reflected in the federal supply to 6 percent.


Current data on ventilator receipt and distribution is no longer available within this dashboard due to a separate system for purchase and distribution of this item.

Retooled manufacturers

Local companies have come on-line to ramp up their production capacities and produce items. So far:

  • More than 100 Washington manufacturers have re-tooled.
  • State purchasing from seven manufacturers for respirator and surgical masks, hand sanitizer and face shields.
  • Other retooled companies are selling items directly to hospitals and other local entities.
