COVID-19

MDH is asking each Healthcare Coalition to collect information on supply chain shortages. The tool is for documentation purposes only. The State is collecting this information and working with the Healthcare Coalition to ensure that requests are captured and resources are depleted prior to pursuing the request of Federal assets.  Report a Resource Request 

Because this situation is changing so rapidly we recommend that you reference guidance on the MDH and CDC Websites.

We are grateful for your desire to help in Minnesota during this challenging situation.  If you want to volunteer or donate items pleas use these email addresses:

  • Volunteer offers (people)
  • Offers of products, medical equipment, venues (from businesses, schools & universities, medical facilities) make sure to forward the offer or direct folks to: hsem.ppp@state.mn.us
