To help keep polling stations safe on Election Day from the COVID-19 virus, Tifosi Optics has partnered with REI and HealthEquip to participate in the Operation Vote Safe program.
“This Election Day, safety is on everyone’s mind. That is why Tifosi Optics is proud to collaborate with REI and HealthEquip for the ‘Vote Safe’ initiative,” Joe Earley, co-owner of Tifosi Optics stated. “The professional grade face shields are ideal for poll station workers as they can be worn for long hours comfortably and provide protection from the risk of Covid-19.”
The face shields donated by Tifosi Optics are made with a thick anti-fog plastic that will cover the entire face, forehead foam to protect and ease pressure after hours of use, and an elastic band to secure the shield.
In addition, REI has launched a marketplace with HealthEquip, where poll workers can purchase a variety of PPE.
“We’re delighted to partner with Business for America and Merit Solutions to stand up the ‘HealthEquip for Vote Safe’ platform,” said Marc Berejka, President of the REI Foundation. “For months, HealthEquip has been helping close the PPE gap at healthcare facilities – it’s only natural to reuse the technology and do the same for polling stations.”
Tifosi Optics is incredibly grateful to all those who are willing to work at the polls this Election Day. It is our hope that by providing PPE, no one will have to choose between protecting their health and not being able to work.
