Urgent Help Needed for PPE Supplies

, ,

Dear Linda,

I hope this message finds you safe and sound. I’m emailing with an important request. Would you help me forward this message to your Program Deans/Directors?  We’ve been asked to help inventory key supplies. Forgive me if you already received this.

John Cordova (SD for health) has put together this useful inventory link – please read the message below and forward to your college Deans/Directors as we work to get a solid inventory of these key materials for each of our sector programs. The goal is to collect the information by EOB Tuesday 3/24/20.

Thanks in advance for any help. Stay healthy, stay hopeful.

PPE Inventory Link

Email Request: 3/20/2020

The California Community College Chancellor’s Office with the state Office of Emergency Services (OES) and the Operations Center coordinating the COVID-19 response has asked that the California Community Colleges conduct an inventory of masks and other PPE that may be currently available at our colleges.

The Chancellor’s Office is asking that our program assists in developing a list that generally describes what products are available and where and a point of contact at each college.

We understand that precise numbers may be difficult to ascertain, but estimates by college and by region would be beneficial. Due to a limited supply of PPE statewide, we are seeking the assistance of the CC’s to provide our front line workers with possible support of resources. PLEASE do not at the time send out the supplies, unless otherwise directed by your local district of the Chancellor’s Office.

This information will be provided to the OES Logistics Task Force per their request.

Thank you for your assistance.
