There is a critical shortage because many public blood drives have been cancelled. Those interested in making a donation can call 970-495-8965 to schedule an appointment.
Despite the worldwide COVID-19 pandemic, it is still safe to donate and receive blood, according to the Food and Drug Administration. Donors must undergo usual screenings to donate, and in addition, will be asked if they recently traveled to any of the major coronavirus outbreak countries, or if they or anyone close to them has been diagnosed with or is suspected of having a COVID-19 infection.
