To help ensure the safety of our team members and other blood donors, we are enforcing the following precautionary measures:

  • Appointments are required to ensure social distancing between donors, team members, volunteers, and visitors.
  • Unvaccinated or partially vaccinated blood donors are encouraged to wear a mask for the duration of their appointment. If you do not have a mask, we can provide you one.
  • In partnership with the state’s public health department, LifeServe Blood Center is testing blood donations for COVID-19 antibodies. Click here for more details. This is not a diagnostic test to determine if you have the COVID-19 virus. Donors who feel unwell or who are displaying symptoms of any illness are not eligible to donate. 

We’re counting on your generous gift of life. If you can’t make your donation time, please reschedule here or by calling us at 800.287.4903.
