Personal Protective Equipment Needed In Ohio To Battle The Coronavirus

Date: March 27, 2020

The state of Ohio is looking for businesses that may be able to manufacture or donate Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) for our healthcare workers and first responders. Also, if your company is able to retool to produce these types of materials, there may be state resources available to assist you.

Ohio business owners have never faced a situation such as this, But it is the small business community in Ohio that will help all of us make it through. We are all thankful for any help that your business can provide.

Ohio Governor Mike DeWine, Lt. Governor Jon Husted, and Dr. Amy Acton, MD, MPH, continue to remind Ohioans of the oncoming shortage of PPE such as masks, goggles, gloves, gowns and face shields for healthcare workers and first responders.

Taking care of a patient who is in intensive care for a 24-hour shift requires:

  • 36 pairs of gloves
  • 14 gowns
  • 3 pairs of goggles
  • 13 N-95 face masks.

The state of Ohio is asking residents and businesses who can donate PPE, or any other essential service or resource, to email [email protected]


You can let Andy Patterson in the NFIB office in Ohio know if you are able to help as well and he can get you further information by e-mailing him at [email protected].

Staff will receive these emails and coordinate how these resources can best be used to benefit all Ohioans.
