COVID-19 Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) Donations and Small Business Face Covering Request

While the Yale New Haven Health System does not normally accept donations of supplies and equipment, the outbreak of Coronavirus Disease 2019 (CoVID-19) has restricted the quantities of protective equipment our caregivers use to deliver care to patients. Under these constraints associated with this Covid-19 outbreak, donations from organizations, companies, groups and individuals to Yale New Haven Health, that meet quality and safety standards, can be donated for our hospitals to use.

We are in need of the following resources:

• Disposable Head Covers/Caps

• Disposable Gowns

• Disposable Gloves

• N95 Respirator Face Masks

• Powered Air Purifying Respirators (PAPRs)

• Disposable Face Masks

• Face-shields/Goggles

• Coveralls/Scrubs

• Shoe-covers

• Disinfection Wipes & Liquids

• General Purpose Hand Cleansers

All items should be in original unopened packaging.

We ask that donors submit donation offers to the Yale New Haven Health System at [email protected] with contact information for our staff to respond to. Employees and medical staff who want to refer third party donors should ask the donor to submit their contact information via this email. All submissions will be answered within three to five business days.

For other questions regarding Covid-19, please call the Yale New Haven Health COVID-19 call center at 833-ASK-YNHH (833-275-9644) 7 days a week.

 

Small Business Face Covering Request

The State of CT has partnered with the Connecticut Business and Industry Association (CBIA) and its affiliate CONNSTEP on an initiative to distribute free face coverings to eligible, essential small businesses with fewer than 50 employees. Eligible essential small businesses can request up to two free face coverings per employee by filling out the form at https://www.ctcovidresponse.org/request-masks-for-ct-small-business. Re... face coverings will be distributed to municipalities beginning the week of May 4, 2020.  Business that requested face coverings will be contacted with a date, time, and location to receive the requested masks within the City of Milford.

Small businesses are strongly urged to create their own face coverings in order ensure the limited supply of coverings go to small businesses that are struggling to secure their own supply.
