As the coronavirus pandemic intensifies and the U.S. faces a shortage of medical supplies such as face masks and gloves, Nike has announced that it is prototyping personal protective gear such as face shields in partnership with the Oregon Health & Science University (OHSU).

Nike CEO John Donahoe told Business Insider that “companies like Nike need to do [their] part.” Donahue added that Nike, whose headquarters are located in Beaverton, is “focused on working with OHSU to support Oregon healthcare workers, as a start.”

The company’s new efforts build on a $7 million USD donation that Donahoe and other Nike executives made to OHSU earlier this month to support Oregon’s efforts to treat the COVID-19 outbreak.
