Blood drive cancellations have pushed our blood supply to severe levels and we appreciate your support. Attached is information on the extra precautions the Red Cross is taking in response to COVID-19 and FAQ’s. Below is support from industry leaders regarding blood donation.
Red Cross safety measures: Temperature screening as donors enter, wearing gloves/masks, social distancing, and additional sanitizing protocols.
Support from industry leaders:
US Surgeon General Dr. Jerome Adams called on healthy Americans to donate blood. “You can still go out and give blood. We’re worried about potential blood shortages in the future. Social distancing does not have to mean social disengagement”.
“We need people to start turning out in force to give blood.” That urgent call-to-action coming from Peter Marks, M.D., Ph.D., director of the U.S. Food and Drug Administration’s (FDA) Center. You can help by signing up to donate at www.redcrossblood.org.
