Small businesses can get a free personal protection equipment kit from the Town of Hempstead.
There are currently 6,000 PPE kits available to small businesses located in the town on a first-come, first-served basis.
Funded through the federal CARES Act, the kits include a contactless infrared digital thermometer, five face shields; eight boxes of 50 three-ply masks; two boxes of 100 pairs of powder-free, vinyl gloves; two gallons of hand sanitizer with a spray pump; and a canister of 1,500 sanitizing wipes.
Eligible businesses must have 20 or fewer employees and have suffered a direct economic hardship as a result of COVID-19 related social distancing policies and stay-at-home order that have materially impacted their operations.
