Coronavirus (COVID-19) Blood Donation Guidelines

  • Temperature pre-screening to ensure health of donors immediately upon entry
  • Routine screening process already in place accounts for understanding travel history and includes a wellness check
    • A self-deferral has been added to the prescreening process asking donors who are not feeling well, who are suspected or confirmed of having COVID-19, or live with someone who is suspected or confirmed in having COVID-19, to refrain from donating.

Safety is our top priority. Visit the COVID-19 blood donation page for details on the many safety measures being taken.
