Collingwood’s hospital is accepting donations of personal protective equipment in preparation for more confirmed COVID-19 cases. 

The Collingwood General and Marine Hospital is looking for unopened boxes of surgical disposable masks, N-95 masks, disposable isolation gowns, non-latex disposable gloves, and new goggles/eye protection which meet health and safety standards. 

According to a news release from CGMH, the supplies can be left at the main lobby screening centre at the hospital. You do not need to call ahead to deliver these items. 

The hospital is not accepting donations of food for physicians or employees. 

“The community can be the most help by continuing to stay home,” said Norah Holder, the hospital’s president and CEO. ““Please understand we anticipate in the days and weeks to come, we will have many more confirmed COVID-19 cases.”
