Personal Protective Equipment (PPE)
Marion County Health and Human Services (MCHHS) has a limited amount of personal protective equipment (PPE) received from state and federal stockpiles. Implementation of PPE conservation measures is highly encouraged.
The PPE is primarily for use in healthcare settings, including inpatient and outpatient facilities, emergency responders, long-term care facilities and residential facilities such as group homes that are serving COVID-19 positive individuals and vulnerable populations.
MCHHS, with guidance from the Oregon Health Authority, uses an allocation matrix to determine priority need for PPE and distributes accordingly. PPE allocations are based on COVID-19 response need, PPE supply availability, burn rates, geographical data, vulnerable populations served, and PPE optimization strategies.
