(4-30-20) In an email sent yesterday by Kim Everman, Mercer County’s Administrator/Clerk of the Board, to media and related individuals with today’s Board Agenda, Mercer County Recorder Angie King replied with the following concern-
Kim, I noticed that protective supplies are being purchased from Amazon. The purchaser needs to do their due diligence to ensure that it is not coming from China. My mother purchased face masks and they were made in China. Another friend also purchased face mask(s) they too were coming from China. In fact, her(s) are coming from Wuhan. It did not disclose where they were being shipped from until after she paid.
Just a FYI
With the current stay at home order still in place and the recommendation by Dr. Amy Acton masks are being encouraged when Ohians are in public locations. Concern has on purchasing supplies from China, especially from the Wuhan Region has also raised red flags. Mask orders from Amazon, another issue facing the buyer is that delivery will not take place until early June.
