Urgent Call for PPE Suppliers: Help Businesses Re-Open

May 7, 2020

As Manitoba shows early indications of flattening the COVID-19 curve, businesses want to ensure personal protective equipment (PPE) is widely available to protect their employees and customers, as well as avoid a resurgence of COVID-19.

PPE is currently, and rightfully, prioritized for front-line healthcare workers. While many firms across Canada have re-tooled to produce PPE, shortages will likely continue for the private sector.
