PPE Supplier Registry to Facilitate Access to COVID-19 Protective Gear
New Jersey's PPE Supplier Registry connects suppliers of personal protective equipment (PPE) with potential buyers. Protective equipment can help prevent the spread of COVID-19.
Wholesale vendors with PPE inventory, such as surgical or other protective masks, hospital gowns, hand sanitizer, or COVID-19 test kits, can submit details on supplies they have available for hospitals, medical organizations, and private businesses to purchase.
More than 1,000 businesses have registered on the database, providing access to more than 2,500 products. The database is updated several times per week, and is easily filtered and sorted by criteria, including product type, size, payment terms and location of supplier.
These vendors sell large quantities of PPE and are not intended for individuals.
Executive Order No. 145, signed by Governor Phil Murphy on May 15, 2020, permits the resumption of elective surgeries and invasive procedures in hospital and ambulatory surgery centers on May 26, 2020, subject to guidance developed by the New Jersey Department of Health.
Executive Order No. 112, signed by Governor Phil Murphy on April 1, 2020, removed barriers to health care professionals assisting in the COVID-19 response and provided additional protections for front line responders.
All health care professionals should remain alert for legislative action on the subject.

Community Support Line
Staffed by trained Atlantic Health nurses, Atlantic Medical Group physicians, licensed social workers and behavioral health clinicians, this line provides real-time clinical guidance to ensure patients receive the safest and most appropriate level of treatment and support.
Practices calling for clinical guidance for urgent, real-time, point of care (in office or by telephone) COVID patient care issues will be routed to one of our trained nurses who are well-positioned to provide answers. If necessary, the nurse will escalate your issue to one of our physicians. Recommendations given are based on current conditions, knowledge and guidance.
Callers experiencing symptoms of COVID-19 will be connected to a nurse for consultation and direction. In addition, the line will address callers seeking resources and guidance with issues including food insecurity, housing, job loss, or other social needs.
As this crisis continues to develop, many are facing emotional challenges. Our behavioral health clinicians will offer support for those callers who are feeling lonely, anxious or overwhelmed.
The COVID-19 Community Support Line can be reached at 862-260-3199. Nurses are available Monday through Saturday from 9:00am to 1:00pm. Social workers are available Monday through Friday from 9:00am to 1:00pm.
