COLUMBUS, Ohio — Gov. Mike DeWine is asking manufacturers in Ohio to help fight COVID-19.

DeWine said he wants manufacturers to help make personal protective equipment due to a shortage in the state.

"Right now, if you’re a manufacturer, and you think you have the potential capability, common seat to create any of the materials, and the products that we need," DeWine said.

The state has created a website for manufacturers that think they are able to help combat the virus by making PPE.
