Giving blood is important to maintain a healthy community. If a hospital patient needs a blood transfusion there is no substitute for donated blood from a healthy volunteer.
LifeServe will be enforcing certain restrictions to ensure the safety of blood donors and workers. First, appointments are necessary to control numbers. If someone doesn’t have an appointment, they will not be able to give blood. Donors should take their temperature before arriving to donate. Only people with temperatures below 99.5 degrees will be permitted to donate blood. Donors are required to wear a mask at all times. They will provide masks to those that don’t have one.
