Governor Larry Hogan today announced that the State of Maryland has now distributed more than 50 million units of personal protective equipment (PPE) to hospitals, state agencies, local health departments, and front line workers. Ramping up supply of PPE is one of the state’s key building blocks for COVID-19 recovery. 

“One of the biggest challenges Maryland and our nation have faced in battling coronavirus has been ensuring we have a steady supply of PPE for our health care workers, first responders, and essential employees,” said Governor Hogan. “Our multi-agency task force continues to make incredible progress on this key building block for recovery. They are working around the clock to ramp up Maryland’s supply of PPE, with large deliveries coming into the state’s warehouses on a regular basis.”

To date, the state has distributed more than 50.8 million units of PPE, including: 15 million pairs of gloves, 1.5 million gowns, 19.4 million surgical masks, 8.4 million KN95 masks, 5.7 million N95 masks, and 854,200 face shields.
