Michigan Chamber Compiles PPE Resource List as Businesses Start to Reopen

The Michigan Chamber of Commerce has compiled a list of companies that supply personal protection equipment in preparation for another surge in demand as businesses around the state begin to reopen.

The 30 companies listed on the chamber’s website manufacture or distribute PPE including face masks, hand sanitizer, sneeze guards, clear partitions, gloves and other items.

“Governor Whitmer’s Executive Orders make it mandatory that businesses provide employees with the proper safety equipment to reopen operations,” chamber COO Bob Thomas said in a news release. “Finding PPE will be the hardest part for small businesses that do not have access to a supply chain.”

Since the coronavirus outbreak began last month, PPE has been in short supply across health care systems and in stores. Companies across the state have stepped up to address the shortage, from distilleries making hand sanitizer to automakers manufacturing ventilators.

Last week, Whitmer required all people to wear face coverings within enclosed public spaces, including food and retail employees. There is no criminal penalty for not wearing face masks in stores, however.
