Local small businesses and nonprofits can now utilize the state’s new online marketplace to request personal protective equipment, according to State Representative Sean Eberhart (R-Shelbyville).

As businesses resume operations, those unable to find and purchase PPE on their own can go online to backontrack.in.gov/ppemarketplace.htm to order masks, face shields and hand sanitizer. While the first round of available PPE has been reached, small businesses can still place orders online. The marketplace anticipates being able to ship protective gear in the coming weeks.
