June 10, 2020
by ADA News

The ADA has received 350,000 3M-made KN95 masks from the national stockpile that the Association is distributing to dentists working in states where personal protective equipment is in low supply.

To secure the masks, ADA staff met with officials from the Federal Emergency Management Agency, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services and the White House Task Force for COVID-19 Response. FEMA has promised to send additional masks — up to 1.5 million total — in future installments. HHS is providing the 3M-manufactured masks in periodic allotments, and ADA will distribute to the states and territories most in need.
