The Central California Blood Center (CCBC), the Fresno County Department of Public Health (FCDPH) and the Mayor’s office are working together to urge healthy individuals to please continue to come in to donate blood.
As concerns surrounding COVID-19 also known as Novel Coronavirus increase, it is critical to remember that donating blood is safe.
Even with the Mayor and Governor’s orders to “shelter in place” donating blood is classified as an essential activity so please, do come out to donate.
Failure to collect enough blood as we continue to navigate the complexities of the virus’s outbreak could result in a critical blood shortage with a great threat to the vitality and wellbeing of our community.
The CCBC is adhering to all Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) measures to ensure the safety and adequacy of our valley’s blood.
We will continue to follow the latest CDC precautions while monitoring CDC and FCDPH reports daily.
Blood transfusions will continue to be needed. CCBC needs people to continue to donate blood, platelets, and plasma as long as:
- They are well and healthy.
- Have not traveled to Asia or Europe in the last 28 days.
In partnership with the Fresno Realtor’s Association, we will be having a “Pop Up” Blood Drive at the Fresno Acura Showroom (7250 N. Palm Ave.) This Friday, March 27, from 8:00am-5:00pm.
Come on by and help us save lives in this critical time of need.
