Harbor Freight PPE Request form 



Unable to source things such as personal protection (gloves, masks, gowns, etc.) or even COVID related testing supplies? AND you’ve exhausted all other (local) resources? Use this form to make a request from Washington State DOH. They will prioritize requests, and you must have exhausted all other resources first. Island County providers were asked to cc the request to our local contact to make them aware we are making this request and as part of the “exhausting all resources” part of the application. Be sure to check with your local health departments for their wishes.
