NOTICE

The federal government has given blood banks the authority to continue collecting blood as part of a critical need for the nation.

  • An essential service includes blood services operations which includes blood drives, manufacturing and distribution activities. These are essential services that are paramount to patient service delivery in the form of blood transfusions.  Blood donations are an essential service.
  • The term “gatherings” does not apply to blood drives conducted by the blood banks, provided social distancing practices are implemented to the maximum extent practicable in the administration of such drives.

If community members are healthy and feeling well, we encourage donors to make an appointment before showing up to donate in order to manage the flow of donors appropriately, in compliance with social distancing practices.

COVID-19 Prevention

handwashing

Protect yourself, your family, and our whole community with simple steps. Wash your hands often, don't touch your face with unwashed hands, and keep a distance from someone who is sick. It is also important for you to stay home if you are sick, and keep sick children home from school and daycare. We can work together to protect our families, our neighbors, and our community.

Governor Parson is holding daily briefings, and Missouri has set up a 24 hour hotline: 877-435-8411.
