For many of us, this summer doesn’t quite look how we thought it would. Plans may have changed and some of us are staying close to home instead of vacationing somewhere far off. But there’s one activity we can schedule and stick to — donating blood.
As hospitals resume surgical procedures and treatments paused because of the COVID-19 pandemic, there is now an urgent need for blood. Donations are needed in the weeks ahead to maintain a steady blood supply. Scheduling is easy, don’t wait.
As a service for our valued donors, all blood product donations will be tested for COVID-19 antibodies, providing insight into possible past exposure to this coronavirus. Only those feeling healthy and well should present to donate and appointments are strongly encouraged. Learn more about antibody testing.
