CDC Law Enforcement Guidance on PPE.

The Department wants to make city officals aware of the push out of personnel protective equipment (PPE) to local jurisdictions.

These are assets being received from the strategic national stockpile.

Local Health Departments will be the lead agencies in coordination of these efforts, but will rely heavily on county and city governments, public safety partners, and health and medical facilities to implement the most effective plan for distribution of these assets in the community.

Cities should coordinate with local health departments for information on how they can receive assets, and may also be called upon to help with distribution.
