Accessing Cleaning Supplies and Personal Protective Equipment (PPE)

In a previous OCDEL update, two recommendations were made for providers having issues accessing cleaning supplies and items such as masks, thermometers, and gloves that are no longer accepting requests. Local emergency management agencies are no longer able to coordinate with child care on supplies requests. Similarly, the resources identified for Big House Productions (masks and cleaner) are no longer available. If you do not have an identified source of cleaning supplies or PPE, visit the Pennsylvania Office of Community & Economic Development ( website to connect Pennsylvania business with those businesses able to meet supply requests.
