LINCOLN, Neb. (KCAU) – A Nebraska health group is asking for help getting medical supplies to those who need them.

Physicians from the Nebraska Medical Association (NMA) are asking all industries to help supply necessary medical supplies for physician clinics and hospitals in the state.

The NMA said that some small clinics and hospitals are running short on supplies and are requesting assistance during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Any business with a bulk supply of surgical masks, N95 masks, eye protection, medical grade disposable gloves, and scrubs are being asked by the NMA to donate the items. They said that some businesses with the supplies may be dental clinics, tattoo parlors, nail salons, manufacturing companies, and construction companies.

People are asked to contact their local physician clinic or hospital to make arrangements to drop off needed supplies.
