When the United States first came together to slow the spread of COVID-19, the president issued guidance, stating, “If you work in a critical infrastructure industry … you have a special responsibility to maintain your normal work schedule.” As the public looks to local, state, and federal governments for guidance, it’s clear that employees in this industry need adequate personal protective equipment.

Benefits of PPE for Government Agencies in Gaithersburg, MD
Controlling infectious hazards at the source is the best way to slow the spread of COVID-19. For instance, your government agency should have protocols in place requiring employees to stay home if they are sick or think they may have come in contact with someone who exhibited symptoms of COVID-19.
On top of this, government workers can benefit from the use of PPE. For instance, they should wear masks, don gloves, and work behind partitions—while still maintaining six-foot social distancing whenever possible. These precautions supplement other safety protocols and can help prevent outbreaks in government buildings.

FAQ About PPE for Government Agencies
What type of PPE should government employees wear?
Some examples of personal protective equipment for government workers include masks, gloves, and gowns or aprons to protect the skin and/or clothing underneath.
How do I dispose of PPE waste?
PPE waste is not considered hazardous, so it doesn’t require special disposal methods. Keep in mind that materials from Rankin PPE have a recommended life span of 8 to 30 washes (following proper care instructions). Once they reach this limit or begin showing signs of deterioration, simply discard them in the trash.
When should government agencies wear PPE?
The spread of the coronavirus is a major concern right now, so most businesses require employees to wear masks, gloves, and other PPE. This could be the right approach for your government agency. Just keep in mind that personal protective equipment is not infallible. Additional measures should also be taken to reduce the spread of infectious disease, including hand-washing and sanitation practices.
Rankin PPE for Maryland’s Government Agencies
Prior to the coronavirus pandemic, Rankin PPE was a trusted upholsterer, serving the Gaithersburg region for over 75 years. We have since shifted gears, applying our upholstery skills and training to the creation of surgical-grade masks and gowns for Maryland’s government agencies. In doing so, we have employed over 20 new workers, many of whom were jobless because of the COVID-19 business shutdowns. We plan to remain a PPE provider well into the future, so partner with us to help keep your government employees safe!
