LSU wraps up PPE production; more than 20,000 protective gowns assembled at PMAC
BATON ROUGE - An assembly line for personal protective equipment that launched at LSU last month has finished production.
The university announced over the weekend that the PPE production line inside the Pete Maravich Assembly Center had met its goal. Since mid-April, the project has produced more than 20,000 gowns for use by medical personnel across the country.
