COVID-19 Resource Guide

COVID-19 Resource Guide for Bioscience Organizations

Stay up-to-date with the latest information from government agencies, BioOhio members and partners, and other helpful organizations. If we follow the science, and take appropriate precautions, every one of us can play a role in keeping the infection curve down. 

BioOhio continues to be a strong and valuable organization during this uncertain time, including taking on the role as a connector and resource in the community working to fight the pandemic.

Do you have questions about COVID-19 vaccines? BIO’s new website, COVID Vaccine Facts, has the answers. The website is an educational tool that links health care providers and the public to scientific and evidence-based information related to the vaccine development process.

Get the facts. Spread the facts. Simply type your question in the box – and get a number of frequently asked questions and answers independently reviewed by health experts. The website also explains critical concepts like herd immunity, antibodies, and emergency use authorization.

It’s important for everyone who is able to take the vaccine to do so to protect yourself, your family, and the community, and get back to normal. Visit and share today.

Personal Protective Equipment (PPE)

Healthcare providers, first responders, and care givers are at the front lines of the fight against COVID-19. The work they are doing to care for the sick, and prevent the spread of the infection, is being performed at great personal risk. Personal protective equipment (PPE) is the most critical need to keep themselves safe and reduce the spread. These materials are in critically short supply. The State of Ohio is asking for manufacturers that produce PPE, or those that believe they can begin production, to reach out and offer their assistance in this emergency.

Visit the Ohio Manufacturing Alliance website to learn more and contribute to the effort.

BioOhio is proud to be helping this effort in coordination with partners at the State and JobsOhio to identify vendors and potential manufacturers. To see a list of companies working to increase the supply of medical PPE, or read more about these efforts, click here.
