Loudoun County residents have responded generously to the county government’s call for donations of personal protective equipment (PPE) for distribution to Loudoun-based health care providers and facilities in need. Since the county began accepting donations of PPE March 30, 2020, the amount of equipment distributed includes:
- 2,725 gloves.
- 820 N95 respirators.
- 295 surgical masks.
- 202 disposable gowns.
County officials remind residents to be cautious when considering making any sort of donation associated with the COVID-19 pandemic. Some groups or individuals may try to profit from the pandemic by soliciting donations of PPE and then selling the equipment. Donating equipment to the Loudoun County government for distribution is safe and ensure the PPE will be distributed to organizations with critical needs.
The need for PPE in our region continues. Any donated supplies may be opened, but must be unused. Individuals and organizations with personal protective equipment to donate should submit an online form with details about the available equipment at loudoun.gov/ppe.
Requests for Equipment
The county is also fielding requests from Loudoun-based health care providers and facilities in need of personal protective equipment. Requests can be made through a form online at loudoun.gov/ppe. Organizations that have previously submitted requests for and received PPE may submit additional request forms if they have additional needs. They will be contacted by a county representative to coordinate the receipt of donated items if resources are available.
