State Health: Ohio Gets PPE Stockpile, More Needed

COLUMBUS, Ohio (News Talk 1480 WHBC) – Ohio has received all the Personal Protective Equipment from that national stockpile.

That’s the precious PPE needed to treat ill patients now and in the future.

Director Dr Amy Acton says they still need donations.

They’re still being taken at county EMA offices.
