Blood: Usage & Donations
COVID-19 is affecting our blood supply. Our current supply is meeting our demands. However, blood donations have decreased by 20 per cent in the last week alone. As a result, we are in a green alert advisory, which means that we are anticipating a shortage. Blood shortages will be designated using either “amber or red alert.” In the meantime, please use blood components responsibly.
Please post this information on blood donations. If you are well, please consider donating blood: http://www.blood.ca, the GiveBlood app, or 1-888-2-DONATE.
