MUSCATINE, Iowa–The COVID-19 pandemic, the test of our time, has already infected over 1.5 million people worldwide and creating unprecedented disruption. To support local health care providers on the front lines, HNI will produce and donate personal protective equipment (PPE). They will utilize factories in Iowa, New York, and North Carolina to meet local needs, such as:

  • Manufacture of washable masks.
  • Manufacture of washable mask covers, which fit over and extend the useful life of N-95 masks.
  • Manufacture of protective gowns, both washable and disposable.
  • Loans of equipment processing time to support local vendors’ PPE efforts. Those applications include cutting materials for acrylic face shields and sewing elastic onto dormant N-95 respirators.

HNI has also offered more products for healthcare use and companies working from home. New programs include:

  • Furniture solutions for health care settings and pop-up health-care facilities, including tables, privacy screens, and patient and provider seating options
  • New custom products to meet urgent needs, including hand sanitizer stands, and employee separation screening.
  • A quick-ship program that allows furniture products to arrive just days after clients order.
  • Work-from-home products.

HNI follows the guidelines of the World Health Organization (WHO) and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) to ensure the safest possible working environment for their members as they produce these materials. HNI remains open for business where they can ensure compliance with local, state, and federal mandates. They will deliver their PPE and healthcare products in a manner that protects the health and well-being of all. HNI has taken steps to protect their members’ health including the following:

  • Having members work remotely if their job function allows.
  • Requiring sick members remain at home.
  • Allowing high-risk members to work remotely or take personal leave.
  • Encouraging social distancing of at least six feet.
  • Supporting CDC guidance that members wear face coverings in public places.
  • Encouraging frequent hand washing.
  • Increasing cleaning routines and sanitation methods of HNI facilities.
  • Prohibiting group gatherings of over 10.
