"Nebraska Community Blood Bank" faces a critical challenge meeting the needs of its hospital partners.
Before Covid, they say donors could stop by community blood drives at convenient locations like high schools, colleges, offices, and places of worship.
"NCBB" reports a significant need for donors of all blood types.
“We are encouraged by the number of people who are getting vaccinated each day and look forward to the return of more donors and more blood drives,” said Kathy Geist, Senior Executive Director. “Nebraska Community Blood Bank" relies on the community to help us support patients in need through blood donation.”
A small number of community blood drives has resumed with enhanced precautions, and NCBB is strongly encouraging donors to make appointments to visit a blood drive or donor center.
“It’s been a year since we began implementing significant safety protocols at our donor centers. We have extended those safety measures at the community blood drives that have been able to restart,” said Geist.
