OneBlood is testing all blood donations for the COVID-19 antibody. The antibody test is authorized by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and will indicate if the donor’s immune system has produced antibodies to the virus, regardless of whether they ever showed symptoms. Appointments to donate are required. Masks are required to be worn by all blood donors. You may wear your own or we will provide one for you if needed.
In order to get the COVID-19 antibody test, a complete donation must be given. This test is available to donors that complete a whole blood, platelet or double red blood cell or plasma donation.
Please DO NOT present to donate if you have a fever or experiencing flu like symptoms. You MUST be symptom free for 14 days prior to donating.
**This test does not check for the presence of an active COVID-19 infection.**
Two options are available – you can visit a OneBlood Donation Center OR find a Mobile Big Red Bus Blood Drive location scheduled near you. Visit the OneBlood Website to make an appointment.
