Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) Survey for Businesses
It has come to the attention of the Montgomery County Government that numerous businesses are having difficulty obtaining Personal Protective Equipment (PPE). In conjunction with the Chamber, a questionnaire has been developed to help the County identify the scope of the need and to facilitate connections between suppliers and customers to help ensure businesses have access to these supplies in compliance with the Maryland Governor’s Executive Order

The survey should be completed by close of business Thursday, April 30, 2020. 
For more information, please email Ginanne Italiano or call 301-652-4900 x 203. Thank you in advance for participation.
