Coronavirus: State of Georgia still seeking businesses to aid with health-care supplies

The state of Georgia is receiving a very positive response to Gov. Brian Kemp’s call for aid from businesses able to help the state provide, produce, distribute or store critical health-care items needed to fight the spread of COVID-19.

The Georgia Department of Economic Development is seeking to identify manufacturers and distributors across Georgia who have or could produce, distribute or store health-care supplies that may become scarce. These include N-95 masks or their equivalent, air purifying machines, face shields, hair covers, hand sanitizer, hospital beds, gloves, negative pressure machines, no-touch thermometers, safety goggles, sanitation units, sanitizing spray, sanitizing wipes, shoe covers, surgical masks, Tyvek suits and ventilators.

Gov. Kemp issued a request for help from Georgia’s businesses on March 24. The state has received a very positive response but is still seeking supplies. Businesses that may be able to help the state can sign up here.
