Personal Protective Equipment
Please note that Procurement and Payment Services is purchasing general personal protective equipment (PPE) to support a phased return to campus. These items include:
- Return to Campus kit (bag with hand sanitizer and 2 re-usable masks)
- Re-usable cloth mask
- Disposable 3-ply surgical masks
- Hand sanitizer
- Vinyl gloves (to be used for occasional cleaning of work space in offices, not to be worn all the time or for use in labs)
- At this time, these supplies will be distributed to departments and schools at no charge.
- These items are for use by employees while they are working on campus.
- Orders should be placed by staff representing entire offices, and quantities should reflect those needed to support all staff working in those offices. Whoever normally orders on behalf of your school, department, or office should coordinate orders for PPE supplies as well.
Please request reasonable quantities and only request what your office needs. Ordering too many to stockpile affects others from being able to get these items that are in short supply. Procurement plans to keep regular stock of these items to support campus into the fall, so additional orders can be placed in the future when more supplies are needed.
- For the research community, 3-ply disposable masks can be obtained from one of the Fisher stockrooms on both campuses. Also, hand sanitizer and disinfectant spray is available from Research Safety on each campus.
