The Red Cross is testing blood donations for COVID-19 antibodies. As part of this effort, plasma from standard blood donations that test positive for COVID-19 antibodies may now help current coronavirus patients in need of convalescent plasma transfusions.
Donors - get good night's sleep, hydrate, and streamline your donation experience and save up to 15 minutes by visiting RedCrossBlood.org/RapidPass to complete your pre-donation reading and health history questions on the day of your appointment.
The Red Cross is also asking that donors bring their own mask or covering that covers both their nose and mouth. If a donor does not have a mask, the Red Cross will provide one.
Anyone who wishes to donate should call and make an appointment at 1-800-RED-CROSS or go to: www.redcrossblood.org
Plan ahead. If all appointment slots are filled, we may not be able to take walk-in donors.
