Fit Testing for PPE is Underway!

SKCDS in ​partnership with WSDA, has gathered, and trained, a group of volunteers to provide Fit Tests to King County dental offices. This service is FREE to members. For non-members, we request a donation of $100, per office, to purchase supplies so the program may continue. To schedule a fit test for your office, go to the "Members Login" ​Drop Down Tab - select "Resources", there members will find ​a list of volunteers. Contact 1-2 volunteers located geographically closest to your office. Volunteers will schedule their own testing visits based upon availability. Non-member dental offices can contact SKCDS to make a donation and ​gain access to the names of Fit Test volunteers. We ask that dental offices coordinate with their Fit Test volunteers to mitigate risks. Depending on the number of people needing to be fit tested, the test fit process takes about 1 hour to complete. For more information or if a non-member dentist, please contact Sandra at sandra@skcds.com or call 206-448-6620.

FREE PPE RESOURCE: King County Public Health

Certain PPEs are in Short Supply everywhere, another source that has been "partially" working is King County Public Health - would recommend dentists apply for PPEs from this resource with an understanding that you will probably not receive everything you request.

All weekly PPE requests must be submitted every Wednesday by 12pm at rcecc.logs@kingcounty.gov. Please make sure to put your facility's address on the request because King County will not deliver to residential addresses. Additionally, King County will NOT provide PPE outside of its jurisdiction.

King County Public Health prioritizes PPE deliveries based on the State's tiering guideline (per Washing State Dept. of Health, dental facilities were Tier #2 at time of this posting last week of May).

Update 6/5: Submitted test order week of May 5/27, received confirmation email 9 day later on 6/5 - for partial fulfillment of that order - with an estimated delivery window of 5-6 days from confirmation. So a net total of 14-16 days.
