We are not seeing a surge yet but we are ready for it. N95 are very difficult to come by. I will probably have to meet someone in a dark alley to get them.?️‍♂️

We are in the midst of a surge. We are doing okay on surgical masks. N95s are in short supply, as are face shields and gowns. They are watching our supplies like a hawk, and we have better than the average hospital when it comes to suppliers. We are also running short on testing components.
