POCATELLO, Idaho (KIFI/KIDK) - Southeastern Idaho Public Health is asking the community to help it find surgical or N95 masks, medical grade gloves, hand sanitizer, and disinfectant spray or wipes.
Because of a nationwide shortage, the materials are needed by first responders and health care workers. The district said emergency crews are having a difficult time obtaining those supplies so that they can continue to protect the community.
