MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- Front-line care workers in Milwaukee are still warning of a severe shortage of PPE supplies.
Aurora Sinai nurse Monica Watry says N95 masks are few and far between at her hospital.
She credits Sinai administrators with making the best of a bad situation, but says the federal government is coming up short.
"We've been reusing our N95 masks, I've had mine for several weeks now," Watry said. "So we are having to sanitize them and keep them in bags to reuse over and over again."
Those masks should be thrown out after each use.
Watry is urging people to abide by safer-at-home guidelines in an effort to ease the load on front-line health care workers.
