MENTOR, Ohio (WJW) – Secretary of State Frank LaRose, Rep. David Joyce, and RB Sigma LLC announced a plan Tuesday to make sure all poll workers in Ohio have masks.
RB Sigma is a Mentor-based manufacturing company.
The company has N95 mask machines and a surgical mask machine.
RB Sigma helped provide PPE for frontline workers in the spring.
In November, they’ll provide poll workers and voters with 400,000 face masks.
The Secretary of State also spoke Tuesday about the need for poll workers for the general election on November 3.
LaRose says the state needs 35,000 volunteers.
LaRose also reversed course and said masks would be required at the polls.
Last week he had said masks would be encouraged but not required.
