PPE requests must be made in advance:

Nevada City, CA—The County of Nevada Office of Emergency Services (OES) is offering local small business owners, with 25 employees or less, a 30-day supply of masks and hand sanitizer for each employee at no cost. This personal protective equipment (PPE) has been made available to California small businesses through the California Governor’s Office of Emergency Services (CalOES) in collaboration with the Office of the Small Business Advocate (CalOSBA).

Local organizations in Western Nevada County have partnered to assist with distribution include the Nevada County Association of REALTORS, Economic Resource Council, Grass Valley Downtown Association, Nevada City Chamber of Commerce, Nevada County Tech Connection, Nevada Union Athletics, and Rotary International.

Fifteen pallets of PPE, including 2,600 gallons of hand sanitizer and 314,000 disposable surgical masks, have been delivered and will be distributed to the small business community on Tuesday, July 21 through Thursday, July 23 at the County’s former Corporation Yard near the Nevada County Airport. “With COVID-19 cases on the rise in Nevada County, it is increasingly important that small business employees have the equipment they need to protect others and themselves.

*** To request PPE, small business owners must complete an online application in advance in order to expedite the processing and distribution of PPE. Please use this link to apply: .
