On Monday, March 23, 2020, Governor Murphy issued Executive Order 109.  Paragraph 7 of the order provides that:

“Any business or non-hospital health care facility, including but not limited to dental facilities, construction facilities, research facilities, office-based healthcare or veterinary practices, and institutions of higher learning, in possession of PPE, ventilators, respirators, or anesthesia machines that are not required for the provision of critical health care services should undertake an inventory of such supplies and send that information to the State by no later than 5:00 p.m. on Friday, March 27, 2020.

The Order further provides that the Office of Emergency Management shall establish a process by which entities subject to this provision can submit this information.

The Office of Emergency Management has now established the process:  an online Personal Protective and Medical Equipment Intake Form, at https://covid19.nj.gov/ppereport, which allows the requested information to be submitted online.
