Supply Request Form: Global Links COVID-19 Southwest PA Request for Materials (April 22, 2020)
- DHS is now partnering with Global Links for supply requests. Keep in mind that the global supply chain is disrupted for all PPE, so quantities are limited. Available supplies include:
- Disposable facemasks (NOT N95 respirator masks)
- Emergency facemasks (reusable, not intended for clinical use)
- Full-face shields
- Incontinence supplies
To submit a request, use Global Links’ online ordering form.
- Please limit requests to no more than what is needed for a two-week period.
- The form requests specific information about how the PPE will be used, such as # of clinical staff, # of clients seen daily, # of clients living in your facility and plans for appropriate use of the PPE.
- After submission, Global Links will contact you within 1-2 days for confirmation.
- DHS will help prioritize supply requests and will step in if supplies are needed that Global Links cannot source.
- Delivery of approved requests will occur 3-5 days after confirmation.
- All deliveries should be contactless.
- Deliveries must be made to a dock or curbside. Drivers cannot enter a building or facility.
- Drivers are expected to wear PPE while delivering materials and to practice social distancing (maintaining at least 6′ of distance from another person).
- Signature on the Global Links delivery order is only required for the driver, not from the receiving organization.
