SHERIDAN COUNTY MONITORING NOVEL CORONAVIRUS SPECIAL RELEASE – May 20, 2020

Wyoming Business PPE Distribution Request

The Wyoming Office of Homeland Security (WOHS) is working with the Wyoming Business Council to provide personal protective equipment (PPE) to eligible businesses.  PPE supplies (masks, gloves, and hand sanitizer) are limited and may be distributed based on the size of the business. Due to current supply chain impacts, WOHS does not have a firm date on when the PPE will be available. Business can visit https://hls.wyo.gov/ and fill out the survey so WOHS can obtain an accurate count and schedule distribution. These efforts will help our Wyoming businesses with fulfilling needs that may assist them as we move forward in easing restrictions. This is on a first come / first serve basis as supplies are limited so we emphasize a timely response to this request.
