NEW – All blood donations are now tested for COVID-19 antibodies. The rest results will be available within 7 to 10 days after your successful donation.
It is very important to understand, that the American Red Cross mission IS an essential service, like
hospitals, grocers, pharmacies, energy and transportation infrastructure, that remain in service as part of emergency response plans. The need for blood is constant and patients continue to need lifesaving blood products.
Blood drives are essential and blood donation must continue during the COVID-19 Pandemic, the Red Cross has added the following safety precautions to their drives:
- Checking the temperature of staff and donors before entering a drive to make sure they are healthyv
- Providing hand sanitizer for use before entering the drive, as well as throughout the donation process
- Following social distancing practices between donors including donor beds, as well as waiting and refreshment areas
- Increasing enhanced disinfecting of surfaces and equipment
- Emphasizing the importance of appointments to help manage the flow of donors at drives
- Staff wearing basic face masks
Each day, the American Red Cross assesses the need and opportunity for additional safety precautions. The health of our
staff, volunteers and donors are every bit as important to us as that of the patients we serve daily. The Red Cross has information “What to know about the Corona virus and Blood Donation” on their website.
American Red Cross ask that you donate blood – did you know that every 2 seconds someone in the United States need blood.
If you donate blood in July you will enter for a chance to win an epic WONDER WOMAN 1984 movie prop replica set. rcblood.org/win
