PPE Call to Action

Please ensure you have adequate personal protective equipment this fall and winter!

Six of our country’s top emergency physicians are putting out the “PPE Call to Action” – a national statement asking everyone in America to have adequate personal protective equipment during flu season.

As weather gets colder and people spend more time indoors, a virus can spread more easily. This year’s combination of influenza and coronavirus could present a particularly dangerous season. Ensuring everyone has access to PPE items helps us unite to get through this pandemic and helps us to better protect our healthcare workers.

Please download and share this infographic of suggested household PPE items everyone needs this fall and winter.

Suggested PPE for fall and winter: masks, disinfectant wipes, soap, hand sanitizer, face shields
