The state has started taking requests from essential small businesses for surgical face masks. The two most important links for small businesses are shown below. Once the request has been received by the state the Regions will be fulfilling the requests as they receive gear. The small businesses will not have to pick the gear up. The fulfilled requests will go through the Bloomfield Police Departments Emergency Operations Coordinator who will be getting the gear every Tuesday as the orders can be filled. The EOC will make sure each business that made a request that has been filled receives their gear.
