While the Saskatchewan Health Authority said it appreciates the public interest in donating supplies to help its point-of-care providers, they are asking people to pause the donations for a few days.
“We are developing a safe process for donations that complies with infection prevention and control standards as well as the social-distancing guidelines from the chief medical health officer,” the authority said in a media release. “We will provide more details for drop off processes and locations in the coming days.”
Any donations must be appropriately packaged in sealed, unopened boxes.
The authority is accepting masks, non-latex gloves and disposable gowns.
It is not accepting sewn masks or gowns.
Due to visitor restrictions, people cannot deliver supplies directly to health facilities.
