Contact your Department of Public Health Office to notify of PPE needs.

It is important to contact your county’s office directly to inquire about their capabilities to issue death certificate and local mandates or orders which may affect your business.

In addition, the Georgia Emergency Management Agency, with the assistance of the Georgia Department of Public Health, continues to request PPE supplies through the Federal system.  To notify officials of your PPE needs: 

  • Contact your local health department.  Some areas may refer you to another contact and it is important to follow their instructions.    
  • Following this process is important as it ensures a central line of communication to accurately track the need counts for Georgia and ensures accurate requests to the Federal level. 
  • Remember, resources will be allocated to the 'hot spots' throughout the country and state.
