Columbia, S.C. (WOLO) — Businesses across the country are doing what they can to help fight COVID-19. That includes local manufacturer Peralta Woodworks, Inc., which is producing intubation boxes to help protect health care workers.

It all started with a request from a friend.

“One of my friend’s wife is an ER doctor, and he reached out to me one day with pictures of what other folks were doing with intubation boxes and just asked for help trying to protect his wife while she was at work. And that’s how this thing got started,” said Ernie Peralta, President and Owner of Peralta Woodworks.

The intubation boxes act as another layer of protection for those health care workers treating patients with COVID-19.
