Business-to-business directory for outbreak supplies created

The directory currently includes manufacturers of N95 masks, fabric and other masks, and surgical masks.

State officials in Pennsylvania have announced creation of a business-to-business directory for supplies related to the coronavirus outbreak.

The Department of Community and Economic Development says the business-to-business interchange directory is intended to connect organizations and businesses directly to manufacturers producing products and supplies related to the outbreak.

Secretary Dennis Davin said it's intended to provide commmonwealth residents access to critical supplies "expeditiously without a middleman."

The directory currently includes manufacturers of N95 masks, fabric and other masks, and surgical masks. Additional supplies and materials will be added the directory as the department identifies potential manufacturers.
