OHIO BWC TO PROVIDE FACE COVERINGS TO EMPLOYERS:
Columbus – May 19, 2020 - Governor DeWine announced today that the Ohio Bureau of Workers' Compensation (BWC) will begin distributing at least 2 million non-medical-grade face coverings to Ohio employers who are covered by BWC.
Public and private employers that participate in the State Insurance Fund will receive a package from BWC containing at least 50 face coverings. These packages will be shipped in batches beginning tomorrow.
The masks, which are intended to support and enhance any workforce safety and health efforts businesses already have in place, are funded through BWC’s existing budget, and will not impact any premiums.
