Default Coronavirus nitrile gloves needed!

Fellow iFishers - as you may know from the news, our healthcare workers and first responders are facing a grave shortage of personal protective equipment in the fight against COVID-19. Among the things they desperately need are nitrile gloves.

Nitrile gloves do not need to be sterile - they can be used in non-sterile settings to protect those directly fighting the virus and caring for infectious and potentially infectious people; think ambulances, emergency rooms, and fever clinics. Also, non-sterile nitrile gloves can offset the use and consumption of precious sterile gloves, which are needed for sterile settings; think operating rooms and intensive care units.

You can help.

If you have unused nitrile gloves, stowed in your boat, or in your workshop, please reach out to the health workers and first responders in your personal network, and find a safe way to pass them on.

If you have a box or more of nitrile gloves but don’t know where to pass them on, post up below the city you are located in and describe what you have got, be it a box or a case; and local healthcare workers and first responders on this board can reach out to you by direct message and arrange a safe way to hand them off.

Thank you!

“Life should not be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming "Whoo hooo! What a Ride!”
