Orange County Government is currently providing free PPE to residents who register for a COVID-19 test at our Orange County Health Services testing site. The County offers various opportunities for residents to pick up free PPE. For example, the County gave PPE to every household that participated in its self-serve sandbag program. In addition, if PPE is needed by residents you can check with one of our 13 Neighborhood Centers for Families locations and they will work to connect you to needed PPE.
Free PPE is also provided at Orange County OneBlood locations to donors who pre-register to donate blood. You must make an online appointment first at www.oneblood.org.
Orange County Government has provided free PPE to local small businesses to assist in reopening and sustaining operations. More than 60,000 small businesses have been provided PPE.
Please stay tuned to this webpage and Orange County’s social media channels and newsroom for possible future distribution dates of PPE to small businesses.
