GREEN BAY, Wis. (WFRV) – HSHS St. Vincent Hospital in Green Bay has received 3,000 FDA-approved plastic face shields from Ford Motor Company.
The face shields, when paired with N95 respirators, can be a more effective way to limit potential exposure to coronaviurs.
On Wednesday, Wisconsin received its second shipment of Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) from the Strategic National Stockpile. The shipment included over 51,000 N95 respirators, 130,840 face/surgical masks as well as face shields, surgical, gowns, coveralls, and gloves.
Representative Mike Gallagher (R-Green Bay) has teamed up with the Brown County Health Department to collect PPE from community members in order to provide healthcare workers with much-needed supplies like N95 masks and gloves.
