As the COVID-19 outbreak intensifies in Illinois, the Illinois Public Health Association is planning to donate 30,000 gloves to statewide health care providers in the fight against this pandemic.

This donation is an effort to respond to the growing need among frontline health care providers for PPE (personal protective equipment).

This PPE will be distributed to frontline providers through IPHA’s partnership with the Illinois Emergency Management Agency (IEMA).

For more information, contact the IPHA at 217-522-5687.
