Finding ways to reuse certain items while maintaining a 'reasonable' state of cleanliness is becoming more important every day, at least in the short term. Hopefully the supply line is restored soon, either from abroad or domestically, but until it is we should try not to throw anything away. Nothing can be treated as disposable without some serious thought.
I'm sitting on a pile of gear that's not quite ready to be donated just yet. It's not first-run hospital supplies today,.....it's dusty cartons from warehouse storage, out of date gloves and suits mostly,.....but once standards draw down a bit someone will be happy to have it. I'm afraid if I donate it too soon some administrator type will rush it off to a dumpster.
