Red Cross Blood Drive
 
 
 

We are hosting a Blood Drive on Wednesday, June 24, from 2 to 7 PM. So far, the Red Cross has 12 online appointments on a patient need goal of 27 and can process up to 45 donors. Appointments can be made HERE.

As of Monday, June 15, the Red Cross has begun testing all blood, platelet and plasma donations for COVID-19 “antibodies.” The Red Cross will use the antibody test authorized by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.

The Red Cross is not testing donors to diagnose illness, but will provide donors insight into whether they may have been exposed to the coronavirus.

Donations will be tested using samples obtained at the time of donation and sent to a testing laboratory where they will also undergo routine screening and infectious disease testing. Donors can expect to receive the results of their antibody test within 7 – 10 days through the Red Cross Blood Donor App or on our donor portal at RedCrossBlood.org.

Donors should not donate if they are not feeling well and wait 28 days before rescheduling their appointments. Appointments can be made, and more information found on the COVID-19 antibody testing, at RedCrossBlood.org.
