Dwayne Weaver, a warehouse employee at Lion Surplus on the University Park campus, stacks boxes containing 14,000 face shields into a surplus storage area. The face shields were purchased by Penn State from Bellefonte Medical Supply, and are one facet of the personal protective equipment (PPE) recommended for use by employees in certain campus settings. The face shields, as well as 1.5 million surgical face masks and 8,000 clear masks that will soon be delivered, are part of Penn State’s multi-layered plan for a return to campus by faculty, staff and students for the fall semester.
