The Wyoming Department of Health first received public health preparedness funding for bioterrorism from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in 1999. At that time, the department began enhancing laboratory capacity, epidemiology and surveillance capacity, and developing our ability to rapidly distribute health alerts to public health and other professional partners in the state. Following the events of 2001, the funding across the county increased and we expanded our planning efforts, training and education offering, and public information skills, while further enhancing laboratory, epidemiology and communications capacity. The increased funding also allowed the department to begin supporting local preparedness efforts through collaboration and funding to the county public health nursing offices, county health officers and local clinical laboratories throughout Wyoming.
The Wyoming Department of Health and the Wyoming Office of Homeland Security are offering PPE to targeted agencies around the state.
Supplies are limited and will be distributed on a first come first served basis.
Available supplies are as follows:
- Masks – will be based on the type of agency
- Nitrile gloves
- Face shields
To request this PPE, please click the button on the right titled “PPE REQUEST FORM”
We ask that each agency will coordinate their response to ensure that only a single request is submitted.
The PPE will be delivered to your county. Distribution or pick up may occur through either the local Emergency Manager or Public Health office.
We will contact the requester through email with the order and delivery status. We are anticipating these deliveries to go out mid-September.
Please note that this is NOT a guaranteed distribution and you should not cancel any previous order you may have placed through other sources.
All communications or questions can be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org
PLEASE SUBMIT REQUESTS BY FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 11, 2020 AT 5PM.
