PHOENIX — Personal Protective Equipment, such as face masks and gloves, are needed to help protect doctors and nurses on the front-line of the coronavirus outbreak.

The Maricopa County Department of Public Health is making a plea to those who may have extra supply.

Due to the severe supply chain disruption of PPE, the MCDPH is implementing a donation management program.

It allows for individuals or organizations who have the materials, commonly used by healthcare workers, to donate it during this state of emergency.
