PPE Burn Rate Calculator: Use this Google doc to determine your burn rate for things like gloves, masks, bleach and other cleaning supplies you use.  After you click on the link, select "Open with Google Doc" at the top middle and follow the other instructions.  If you have any questions, please contact Shannon at  You can also use this Tally Sheet for your own purposes for keeping track of your inventory.

Request additional PPE Supplies: After distributing PPE to programs who have previously requested supplies, RIAEYC has access to a limited number of additional touch-less thermometers and surgical paper masks for distribution. Supplies will be prioritized for child care and school-age programs that have not yet received PPE or have recently opened additional classrooms. If you are not sure whether your program has previously received PPE, please contact your program's leadership.
