Blood Donation is an Essential and Encouraged Activity
Blood donors are exempt from Governor Inslee’s stay-at-home order, which recognizes the vital role played by Bloodworks donors in sustaining community health care, especially during emergencies. You are special, and everyone recognizes it.
Donating blood plays a key role in public health emergencies and patient care. It’s a way for people to look after their family, friends, and neighbors experiencing trauma, cancer, and unforeseeable public health emergencies. Blood donation remains a safe activity and is encouraged by the CDC, FDA, U.S. Surgeon General, and other public health officials.
Keeping You Safe
To keep all donors and staff safe, Bloodworks has shifted to scheduled appointments only. Additionally, they’ve spaced out center appointments, paused all mobile blood drives (buses and inside drives), and are not permitting any children under age 16 on-site.
Save Lives - Donate Blood!
If you’re healthy and well (and maybe need to get out of your house for an hour), please consider supporting patients in need by donating blood by appointment. The need is still there for patients who rely on donors like you!
Even if you have never donated before, please consider giving blood today. With all of the mobile drives being cancelled, each individual donor is more valuable than ever.
