Kaleida Health continues to deliver on our promise to keep our workforce safe and healthy during the COVID-19 pandemic. Earlier this week, Kaleida Health received a planned shipment of 47,000 N95 masks.
This additional supply of masks – combined with social distancing, increased hand washing, universal masking, acquiring face shields, access restriction for visitors/vendors, mandatory temperature checks, access to telemedicine and working from home – will ensure Kaleida Health remains a healthy and safe workplace.
As a reminder, N95 masks are available for any staff member who requests one. If you do wish to wear an N95 mask, please contact your supervisor/manager as everyone must be fit tested in order to be able to wear this type of mask. (Fit testing is not required for the surgical/procedural masks).
Thank you to the purchasing and supply chain teams who have worked tirelessly to grow our inventory of N95 masks as well as other personal protective equipment, medical equipment and supplies.
