In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, Wilmington, DE-base DuPont recently launched #TyvekTogether – a new program designed to increase the availability of Tyvek personal protective garments for health care workers. At full capacity, the initiative could deliver 6 million additional nonsurgical isolation gowns a month. Since January, the company has increased monthly production of Tyvek garments by more than 9 million (more than double the amount produced for any previous crisis). Through the program, DuPont will introduce a new specialized Tyvek fabric to increase production to 15 million garments a month. To learn more, visit
