Expanded access to a City of Los Angeles program is making it easier for businesses in our region, including film production companies, to acquire PPE for worker protection.
The Logistics Victory Los Angeles (LoVLA) Program was launched by Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti through the Port of Los Angeles in April 2020. The program successfully sought to make PPE (N95 masks, nitrile gloves, and more) available at reduced cost to first responders, hospitals and health care organizations treating COVID-19 patients.
After providing more than 8.5 million units of PPE to more than three dozen hospitals and more than 200 skilled nursing facilities and medical providers, access to the program is expanding now that local hospitalizations of new COVID-19 patients continues to decline.
Businesses interested in purchasing PPE can now acquire it directly directly from the LoVLA inventory. The City has a surplus of Honeywell N95 respirators (DF300) offered at only $0.79 per mask, in addition to DC300 masks that fit other face profiles at $0.87, plus other inventory items like nitrile gloves, disinfectant wipes, and isolation gowns.
For more information or to purchase PPE supplies, please email our LoVLA Program contact at the Port of Los Angeles.
Please note that payment must be provided up front prior to taking receipt of goods. After you payment clears, you will be notified when requested items are available to pick up at a City warehouse located at the Port of LA complex in San Pedro/Wilmington area.
Thank you for filming in Los Angeles!
