The University of Guelph says it is making another large donation of personal protection equipment to local public health authorities in the battle against the novel coronavirus.
The donation for local hospitals and health care facilities includes more than 100,000 nitrile gloves, 2,300 N95 masks, sanitizer, isolation gowns and nasal swabs.
The university already donated 10,000 N95 masks and two ventilators from the Ontario Veterinary College in late March.
“Once again, we are happy to step up,” said vice-president Don O’Leary. “[We] are committed to doing all we can to support the fight against COVID-19.”
The university said for this latest shipment, the equipment was gathered from across campus, including labs, animal services, hospitality services and the athletics department.
