Legislative Board Approves Ebola-Related Emergency Funding

Although none of the 142 Ohioans who are currently being monitored for Ebola symptoms have tested positive for the virus, a legislative panel on Monday approved a Department of Health emergency request to spend $300,000 on protective equipment for medical personnel.

The Controlling Board approved the personal protection equipment request and granted permission to waive competitive selection so that the department can contract with a Cincinnati bio-recovery company for contamination clean-up services at a cost of up to $500,000.
