Wyoming Office of Homeland Security supplies PPE to businesses
The Wyoming Office of Homeland Security is supporting 1,266 Wyoming non-healthcare related businesses by providing personal protective equipment (PPE) to aid public safety efforts during the COVID-19 pandemic.
In May, Wyoming Governor Mark Gordon allocated $2 million from the CARES Act funding to the Wyoming Office of Homeland Security to purchase and distribute this vital equipment to assist businesses in keeping their employees and customers safe.
“We are pleased to be able to supply our Wyoming businesses and communities with the equipment they need to be safer as we navigate through this process,” Director Lynn Budd, Wyoming Office of Homeland Security said. “Working together and helping each other is the standard in Wyoming and exemplifies our true western spirit.”
The first round of PPE was distributed in mid-June. The final round of requests closed July 1 and supplies will be distributed to businesses as soon as possible.
