HEADS UP: Availability of Rapid Tests and Masks

January 19, 2022

Good morning,

We’ve been waiting for the communication (below) from the National Council re: their ability to link members to discounted COVID Test Kits and N95 masks.

Please take a look at the information below and if you are interested, use the link embedded in the paragraph that is highlighted below (‘Learn More’).

We hope this is helpful to all NYS Council member agencies.


Good morning Association Executives,

As you may know, we are working with our trusted PPE provider to help National Council members access the health and safety resources they urgently need.

National Council members can purchase COVID-19 test kits and masks at a discount. But time is running out. Access the remaining PPE inventory while you still can:

·     iHealth® COVID-19 Antigen Rapid Test Kits ($1,885 per case/180 total tests)

·     FDA-approved NIOSH N95 masks ($525 per case/400 total masks)

To serve as many members as possible, we are capping test kit orders at four cases (720 total tests) and mask orders at 10 cases (4,000 total masks). Learn more about purchasing and shipping.

We hope this helps your members in their time of need, and we encourage you to pass this information along to them. Have questions? Please contact our Membership Team.

We are grateful for the chance to continue supporting your PPE needs, and on behalf of everyone at the National Council, thank you for being part of our community.
