PERSONAL PROTECTIVE EQUIPMENT – STARTER PACKS & INFECTION CONTROL & PPE GUIDANCE

Thank you for your ongoing partnership as we all do our part to minimize exposure and risk of COVID-19. An important component of school reopening is ensuring that our school nurses and delegated staff who provide health care to students have Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) to protect themselves and mitigate the spread of COVID-19. Accordingly, the State will provide to all North Carolina public school units a PPE Starter Pack for school nurses and delegated staff for the first two months of the 2020 – 2021 school year. The PPE Starter Pack will include a two-month supply of thermometers, surgical masks, face shields, and gowns.
