Personal protective equipment for front-line workers

- Ottawa, Ontario

Beyond carrying on with the critical tasks across the NRC during the pandemic, we are proud to have made donations of urgently needed PPE for frontline workers.

On March 27, we put the call out to our researchers and branches, asking them to identify surplus stock of unopened PPE that could be spared. On April 3, The NRC collected 10 pallets of urgently needed PPE, including:

  • N95 masks
  • nitrile gloves
  • disposable coveralls with integrated boots and hood

The majority of the PPE was collected on our Ottawa campus and shipped to the Ottawa Hospital, Riverside Campus.
