New Ontario Together website tracks availability of urgently needed products

The province of Ontario wants to ensure that our frontline healthcare workers are appropriately protected as they care for those who are ill with COVID-19. 

To help reduce any shortages of personal protective equipment (PPE) for healthcare workers due to Coronavirus, we are asking for all workplaces in Ontario to assist if they can.

Many workplaces are working at lowered capacity due to the pandemic or may have stores of PPE that they do not need immediately.

If your business or organization can provide medical products such as ventilators, N95 or equivalent respirators, surgical/procedure masks, gloves, swabs, eye protection or disposable gowns, please visit the Ontario Together website  tell us what you have available using this link: https://www.ontario.ca/page/how-your-organization-can-help-fight-coronavirus

If you could please share this information, it would be greatly appreciated.

Please note: if you have previously completed a survey for Public Services Health and Safety Association (PSHSA) sharing your available equipment there is no further action for you to take. We will ensure that Ontario Together receives your information.
