Please see the attached letter from NYS Health Commissioner Howard Zucker MD addressed to healthcare facility CEOs regarding possible shortages of PPE during 2019-nCoV and share with local/regional EMS.
I have also included the link to the Department’s webpage on the subject of the 2019-nCoV as well as the Bureau of EMS Policy 20-02 both of which will be updated as necessary. Consequently, please check these links regularly.
