Connecticut has received thousands of surgical masks for medical workers.
Gov. Ned Lamont said Prudential has donated 50,400 surgical masks to the state of Connecticut’s supply and they will be distributed to medical workers at facilities across the state.
Stamford-based Americares said it is delivering more
than 1.4 million protective masks for health workers on the front lines of
the COVID-19 pandemic in the United States to alleviate shortages at hospitals
and primary care facilities in 11 states and Puerto Rico.
Americares said the city of New York has already received 300,000 masks and the state of Connecticut and Boston Medical Center in Massachusetts have each received 100,000.
