Free PPE available through OSU Extension
Oregon Governor Kate Brown has directed the distribution of approximately 1 million KN95 masks and 5,000 gallons of hand sanitizer for farmworkers and agricultural producers.
This critical personal protection equipment (PPE) is available at no cost to the agricultural community to mitigate the spread of COVID-19. Limited supplies will be provided at each site until supplies are fully distributed.
Oregon State University Extension Service in Clackamas County will serve as one of the distribution sites on Wednesday, May 27, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.
Extension staff and volunteers will also be on hand to distribute high speed hand washing posters designed by OSU to illustrate how groups of 20 to 30 people can get their hands washed properly in 5 minutes or less.
The critical PPE distribution effort is collaboration between Oregon Governor Kate Brown, Oregon Department of Agricultural, Oregon State University Extension, Oregon Emergency Management, Oregon National Guard, and county partners.
Date: Wednesday, May 27
Time: 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. (or until supplies are exhausted)
