LifeShare Blood Center is temporarily continuing the antibodies testing for SARS-CoV-2 the virus that causes COVID -19 for all blood donors. The testing is going on now until Friday, July 31st. The test can indicate whether someone has been exposed to COVID-19.

Over the past several weeks, LifeShare has received countless inquiries about antibody testing for COVID-19. LifeShare is now able to provide this service as a way to encourage people to donate blood. “When the pandemic first moved into our region, we saw a tremendous outpouring of support from our blood donors,” says LifeShare Regional Director Elizabeth Cunningham. “Since then, we’ve seen a decline in the number of people giving blood while at the same time, hospitals are beginning to address their backlog of elective procedures.”

Please stop by any of these blood drives to donate blood and receive the antibody testing too:
