280K masks donated to Washington dentists

The Washington Dental Association and Delta Dental of Washington gave out 280,000 free protective masks to dentists as they prepare to reopen their offices May 18, according to KOMO News.

The two organizations obtained 300,000 masks from Washington's Emergency Management Division. The distribution drive, held May 16, gave each dentist one bag with 25 KN95 masks and 25 Class 3 surgical masks.

The drive was held to help dentists replace the personal protective equipment stock they need to safely reopen their offices, after many of them donated their supply to healthcare facilities during the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic.
