SB 275: The Healthcare and Essential Workers Protection Act

SB 275: The Healthcare and Essential Workers Protection Act

Throughout this pandemic, we’ve seen up close the agony that PPE shortages cause workers, patients, and communities — including unnecessary infections and deaths.

SB 275 will protect Californians during viral pandemics by requiring both the state and healthcare providers to stockpile personal protective equipment (PPE) and prioritize its distribution to low-income, medically underserved communities.

On their last day of legislative session, the State Assembly and Senate passed SB 275! Now we move on to the Governor. Let’s continue working to protect ourselves, our families, and our communities by participating in the We Are Essential Digital Action!
