The pandemic has stressed a lot of services that we rely on, including blood services. Chris Pilgrim, spokesperson for the Community Blood Center of the Ozarks joined us this week on Morning Edition to talk about increased precautions that they are taking amid the pandemic and whether it’s affect the number of donors that are visiting.
I first asked what the status of the blood supply in Southwest Missouri, Southeast Kansas and Northwest Arkansas?
Say that, you’ve had COVID-19, that you’ve recovered and been able to go back to your normal life and you want to do donate, are there any restrictions? Or are we still learning about that?
Anybody that has donated even once knows that it is a very personal experience. There’s no way that you can Zoom a blood donation. So, what if any are additional precautions or procedures that the Community Blood Center of the Ozarks are taking?
