Faith’s next scheduled Blood Drive is Friday, August 21, 2020 from 12:30 – 6 PM. The American Red Cross and Faith United Methodist Church is committed to following extensive safety protocols during this COVID-19 pandemic.
The American Red Cross is urging donors who are feeling healthy and well to give now to maintain the blood supply for patients who rely on lifesaving transfusions.
At each blood drive, Red Cross staff follow the highest standards of safety and infection control, and have implemented additional precautions that you will notice at your local blood drive:
~ Checking temperature of all staff, volunteers and donors before entering blood drive
~ Staff and volunteers will wear gloves throughout entire drive, changing gloves often
~ All staff, volunteers and donors will be required to wear face masks or coverings at the blood drive in alignment with CDC public guidelines
~ Hand sanitizer will be available at check-in, health history and refreshment areas
~ Donors beds will be sanitized between every donor
~ Set up to allow 6 feet distance between donor areas
~ Only blood donors will be permitted at blood drives
