The following guidelines are also being followed to protect against the spread of COVID-19:

  • Masks are to be worn at all times.
  • Gloves are worn and changed for every donor.
  • Beds are wiped after each donor.
  • Screening rooms are wiped down after each donor.
  • Temperatures will be taken at the registration table to ensure donors do not have a fever before moving into the screening rooms.
