UPDATE::::Can I Make Something Perfectly Clear About Blood Donations During The COVID-19 Crisis?

**********THEY DO NOT PERFORM FREE COVID-19 TESTS WHEN YOU DONATE BLOOD!!! PERIOD!!!!****************

My son works for a blood donation center and apparently has had to tell large numbers of people that giving blood does not provide you with a COVID-19 test to see if you are infected. This myth was the same myth that went around during the AIDS Crisis. If someone walks in with a potential COVID-19 symptom, the center is closed down and all employees have to shelter in place for two weeks further reducing the country's blood supply.

If someone in your family is sick and untested, or you have symptoms, stay away from blood donation centers entirely. They will simply throw your blood away anyway and you will never know. My son has already had 3 potential exposures and half of their centers have been closed down. People that want to donate in order to be tested for COVID-19 are only making the problems worse for everyone.

PLEASE! Don't be reckless and endanger everyone else.
