Washington County Encourage Community Members to Donate Personal Protective Equipment
Washington County Administrator Josh Schoemann and the County's COVID-19 Incident Command Team is encouraging community members, groups and businesses to donate personal protective equipment (PPE) to first responders and county critical response teams during the COVID-19 pandemic.

"PPE is in extremely limited supply for those on the front lines of the COVID-19 response," said County Administrator Schoemann "Along with health care workers and first responders, workers assisting our vulnerable populations and those delivering other vital human services need equipment to do their jobs safely."

PPE includes N-95 masks, surgical masks, face shields, googles, safety glasses, gowns, disposable gloves, and other protective gear.

Washington County's logistic team is currently planning for the duration of this emergency.

If you are interested in donating PPE's to first responders or would like more information, please DO NOT drop-off equipment until you have contacted the logistics team at logistics@co.washington.wi.us or called the highway department at 262-335-4435 (open Monday - Thursday).
