Note: The following is a news release from St. Luke’s University Health Network related the ongoing novel coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. As of late Saturday, Pennsylvania had nearly 400 confirmed cases of the virus, including 30 confirmed cases in Lehigh and Northampton counties. The state has reported two deaths as a result of COVID-19.
As COVID-19 spreads throughout the United States, health care systems are preparing for potential nationwide shortages of critical supplies. While St. Luke’s University Health Network currently has an adequate stock of necessary items, we want to remain agile by ensuring we are prepared for any shortages that might occur in the future.
As such, St Luke’s is accepting donations of personal protective equipment (PPE) and other supplies from our employees, patients, friends, family members and community partners. The types of PPE and supplies we are specifically interested in are: surgical masks, N95 masks, goggles, face shields, vinyl gloves, hand sanitizer, Lysol and Clorox, including wipes. We are also accepting hospital-grade cleaning supplies and disinfectant.
Additionally, we are accepting donations of fabrics for making our own masks, including cotton, denim, duck cloth, canvas, twill, silk or other tightly woven fabric, as well as elastic or rubber bands.
