Open Letter to Ohioans

Dear Fellow Ohioans,

I, like everyone else want to get back to normal as quickly as possible. The economic devastation that has hit businesses and forced many to close is indescribable.


Ohio leadership has faced insurmountable challenges, and the decisions made with little time to contemplate helped save lives, reduce infections, and bought time to build up infrastructure, PPE and overall preparedness.


We have secured a supply chain of 12 manufacturers registered with the FDA with a combined daily production capacity of 16 million masks. We also have access to seven million masks available for next day delivery from suppliers with physical stock in the US to accelerate the mission of getting masks to as many people as possible as quickly as we can. If you are looking for masks, please visit our site.


I was in Tokyo and Taipei at the end of January and saw firsthand the culture of everyone wearing a mask. In these countries, a mask is part of everyday life. As a result, COVID-19 has not been as severe in these places in comparison to the western world. These countries have mitigated lockdowns, have democratically elected governments, are U.S. allies and sit right next to the epicenter of the outbreak. The comparison is shocking and can be found at facemasksforall.com/stats


The bottom line: facemasks make a difference.
