To support healthcare providers during the COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic, Oswego School District 308 has donated masks, gloves and sanitizer to Rush Copley Medical Center in Aurora.

A press statement issued by the district Saturday confirmed that more than 45 boxes of Nitrile exam gloves in various sizes, a package of N95 masks, five boxes of dust masks, 18 boxes of antibacterial wipes and 18 bottles of hand sanitizer were recently delivered to the hospital.

Rush Convenient Care Clinical Manager Christina Adams, RN, expressed gratitude for the important supplies when she recently met with OSD 308 Health Services Director Debbie Miller, RN, to receive the packages.

In addition to the supplies sent to Rush Copley, OSD 308 has loaned two non-contact thermometers to the Oswego Police Department and two to the Kendall County Sheriff's Department.

As schools are currently closed due to an order from Governor JB Pritzker, an inventory of available personal protective equipment (PPE) was taken at the district's buildings. All supplies that could be spared, while reserving a safe amount for student care when school resumes, were delivered to Rush Copley.

"During this time of crisis, the district is grateful that we can contribute to area partners who are serving our community," Superintendent Dr. John Sparlin said.

The district has also created a resource page on its website featuring links to online learning, important announcement, parent messages, and other matters related to the COVID-19 outbreak.
