Feb. 8, 2021: PPE Distribution and Replacement

Dear Faculty and Students:

We would like to update you on PPE distribution for the spring 2021 semester.   

  • Newly admitted students to the entry-into-practice BSN program and CNL option for spring 2021 receive PPE through their first-semester courses.

  • Continuing students enrolled in courses with an in-person patient care requirement were mailed surgical masks to the permanent address on file in SURFS during the week of Jan. 20. Please allow until next week to receive your package. 

  • If you need additional surgical masks or face shield, you do not receive the mailed PPE, or you are a faculty member, you may pick up PPE in person at one of the following locations (pick-up of less than 15 minutes does not require COVID test or SAFE symptom completion):
    • Baltimore: Environmental Health and Safety Building, 714 W. Lombard St.
      • Bring UMB OneCard to enter building
      • Third floor conference room
    • Tuesdays and Thursdays, 9 a.m. – noon (except 2/9/2021)
    • Universities at Shady Grove:, Building 1, First-Floor Lobby
      • Tuesdays by appointment, 10 a.m. - 2 p.m.
      • Sign up online

  • Fit Testing: If you need a half-mask or replacement for your N95, please contact Bernie Shalit at bshalit@umaryland.edu.
