Orange County PPE Distribution
Orange County PPE Distribution
Orange County Government has given away more than 7.5 million face masks and more than one million hand sanitizers to our community and small businesses as well as through social services organizations in our community.

Residents

Orange County Government is currently providing free PPE to residents who register for a COVID-19 test at one of our Orange County Health Services testing sites. 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.

Small Businesses

Orange County Government has provided PPE to small businesses in Orange County to assist in reopening or sustaining operation. More than 50,000 small businesses have been provided PPE.
