Silver State Industries Produces Hand Sanitizer for Medical Personnel, Law Enforcement
Silver State Industries, the industrial arm of the Nevada Department of Corrections (NDOC) has launched a hand sanitizer manufacturing program to dramatically increase the supply available to medical personnel, corrections, and other law enforcement throughout Nevada.
“NDOC saw a need for additional protective measures for their staff, and for others in Nevada who are serving on the front lines in the fight against COVID-19,” said Charles Daniels, Director of NDOC. “Offenders at Northern Nevada Correctional Center (NNCC) are now producing thousands of bottles a day to meet this urgent demand for personal protective equipment.”
Hand sanitizer is a valuable tool in the fight against COVID-19 and an effective hygiene option when soap and water are not available. Providing hand sanitizer to protect Nevada’s essential workers like corrections, law enforcement and medical providers is one way NDOC is supporting the state during the COVID-19 response.
