Care workers across north Somerset are having to work without personal protective equipment due to supplies "drying up", a council has said.
North Somerset Council is appealing to schools, colleges and businesses to help "bridge the gap" until new stocks reach the South West at the beginning of April.
Councillor Mike Bell said: "We need basic items such as masks, disposable gloves, aprons and hand sanitiser.
"Please, if you have them stored away, and don't have an immediate care-related need, get in touch. You will help save lives."
