Energy Industry Steps up to Battle COVID-19, Part III

Following up on last week’s blogs (here and here) on the energy industry’s willingness to step up and help battle the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, there is now more good news.

According to a press release from ExxonMobil, the hand sanitizer that we detailed and The Wall Street Journal praised the company for making at its production facility in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, is already being shipped to areas in need of supplies, including Texas, New York, New Mexico, New Jersey, Louisiana and right here in Pennsylvania.

On Monday, 1,200 gallons of medical grade hand sanitizer was been delivered to the Pennsylvania Emergency Management Agency at the Farm Show Complex in Harrisburg. The company says it is targeting another 160,000 gallons of sanitizer for distribution across the country.

Enough praise cannot be given to the companies willing to forego their usual operations for COVID-19 relief. Companies in the energy industry have been some of the most swift and eager to help. Thank you, ExxonMobil!
