    I will not disclose where or what or who, but I will pass on this…..

    I work at a facility that requires the use of semi permeable protective clothing to prevent occupational exposure to hazardous substances. The company I work for is working under a federal government contract.

    It appears that we will not be able to get this protective clothing from the vendor in the near future. Additionally, a department within the federal government has requested that we submit the number of protective suits in our inventory for possible transfer. In other words, shut down a portion of our work and send the suits elsewhere.

    I’ll let you put two and two together to speculate why.

    On edit: My understanding is that it is all in the name of taking precautionary measures. Being prepared ahead of time. Defense in depth. That sort of thing.

    You’re saying, you work for a facility that is in need of protective gear.

    Next, this protective gear is going to be in short supply, and one can not get new gear to supplement the pre-existing ones.

    Lastly, some of the current supply is being re-allocated to go towards the government?

    WOAH….  Am I getting this right?

    in short supply because demand up or supply down?

    different speculations in each case

    So, the theory is that the Government is stockpiling this PPE in case of a domestic outbreak of the viral type?

    Hi mick,

    Sounds like the coronavirus may be something in our future.  Thanks for sharing.

    the very expensive and newly constructed cleanroom has yet to be utilized–been sitting unused for several months–and the prep area is completely devoid of any PPE.
