Personal protective equipment (PPE) in the context of the COVID-19 pandemic ensures good infection prevention control practices and disease containment.

Ordering PPE from the State Backstop

If you have trouble ordering PPE from other sources, the state backstop can help support you. Visit the Washington State Department of Health's COVID-19 Infection Prevention in Healthcare Settings webpage to find ordering information.

Washington PPE Purchasing Co-Op

With the heightened need for PPE due to the novel coronavirus, and the cost and shortage of reliable PPE, a public-private collaborative group of health care associations and organizations, including the WSMA, joined together to facilitate group purchasing of vetted, high quality PPE. Learn more about the Washington PPE Purchasing Co-Op.

The Washington PPE Purchasing Co-Op may be making future group purchases if there is sufficient interest. If your practice would be interesting in joining a future group buy, please reach out to the WSMA policy department at
