Sask Polytech helped health-care workers with much-needed supplies

Saskatchewan Polytechnic provided supplies to help health-care workers stay safe throughout the province in their frontline response to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Sask Polytech collected seven pallets containing thousands of pieces of personal protective equipment (PPE) and other supplies from the Moose Jaw, Prince Albert, Regina and Saskatoon campuses in April and shipped them to a central location identified by the Government of Saskatchewan for distribution to health regions throughout the province.

Among the items shipped were:

  • 741 boxes of gloves
  • 40 boxes of masks with face shields
  • 212 boxes of procedural masks
  • 219 boxes of N95 and another 420 N95 masks
  • 4 boxes of surgical masks
  • 780 isolation gowns
  • 41 containers of hand sanitizer
  • 20 tubs of wipes

All of these items were especially important in safeguarding the health of doctors, nurses and other health-care professionals treating COVID-19 cases, some of whom are Sask Polytech alumni.
