New York Times: Where Thousands of Masks a Day Are Decontaminated to Battle the Virus

Employees from central Ohio's own Battelle have recently decontaminated over 30,000 pieces of personal protective equipment (PPE) for frontline providers who are treating COVID-19 patients.  This includes PPE for OhioHealth and over 100 other enteties.
