Carolyn’s wise reminder: as cities and towns begin to open up again, personal protective gear will be in need more than ever, as everyone begins navigating how to safely share space again.
“Despite what you may have heard from the government, the PPE crisis is far from over. Masks and shields are still being used for days or even weeks at a time. Protective gowns, gloves, and disinfecting wipes are still difficult to obtain in the quantities we need.
As businesses open up they too will need these items to protect themselves and the situation will only continue to worsen. And let’s not forget we need to be diligent in preparing for the strong possibility of a second wave in the upcoming months. No nurse, doctor, respiratory therapist, or other healthcare worker should be putting their life on the line to care for a patient because we don’t have the necessary PPE.
We are not martyrs.”
