Here is information from Canadian Blood Services regarding their COVID-19 precautions:

  • Current evidence indicates COVID-19 is not transmitted by blood or blood products.

  • It is safe to donate. Your donation can help save a life.

  • To ensure we can continue to meet the needs of Canadian patients, we need everyone who is eligible and healthy to continue to book and honour their appointments to donate blood.

  • The need is constant for blood, stem cells, plasma and organ and tissue donors.

  • We are grateful for every blood donation.

  • Make blood donation an exception if you’re limiting interactions in response to COVID-19.

  • Our donation sites are places of wellness. Only healthy people are eligible to donate blood.

  • As we would for flu symptoms or other illnesses, we ask donors to stay at home if they are not feeling well, since only healthy people are eligible to donate blood.

  • We have robust cleaning and infection-control practices and strict screening measures in place to ensure the safety of donors, staff and volunteers.

  • Canadians rely on us to keep the blood system safe and we take this responsibility very seriously.
