Requesting PPE Supplies

Posted on July 28, 2020 | Filed under General News

Operating through the COVID-19 pandemic will require supplies and equipment to manage our space and guard public health. In early July, the COVID Logistics committee offered a first round of PPE (Personal Protective Equipment) supplies (thermometers, face-coverings, hand sanitizer, disinfectant wipes) to support the gradual return of our employees to work on campus. In recognition that some of these supplies will require ongoing replenishment, the Logistics committee has designated Building Coordinators as the point of contact to consult with their department to identify needs and reorder PPE supplies. Requests should be made with an understanding that the availability and cost of supplies have been significantly disrupted by the COVID-19 pandemic. Requests for other COVID-related equipment specific to your department’s operations (i.e. partitions, traffic control barriers, etc.) or an extraordinary stock of supply items should be submitted through the COVID-19 Equipment Request Form. All requests will be modified or fulfilled according to guidance from the work of the Allegheny College Health Agency (ACHA), the Pandemic Operational Groups, and your AEC member. The goal is to ensure campus-wide standards, provide an equitable approach, and to be financially responsible.
