On March 17, the Trump administration urged construction companies to donate construction-
grade N95 masks to local hospitals and clinics and forego additional orders since the nation’s hospitals are in desperate need of masks and other equipment for healthcare workers.
“We would make one specific request, and that is we would urge construction companies to donate their inventory of N95 masks to your local hospital and forego additional orders of those industrial masks,” Pence said, adding, “Those industrial masks that they use on construction sites are perfectly acceptable for healthcare workers to be protected from a respiratory disease.”
