Safety Precautions

The American Red Cross would like to reassure the public that we have implemented additional precautions to ensure the safety of our donors and staff including but not limited to:

  • Checking the temperature of staff, volunteers and donors before entering a drive to make sure they are healthy. Anyone with a temperature greater than 99.5 °F may not enter the blood drive. 
  • Wearing masks, gloves and changing gloves between donors. 
  • Providing hand sanitizer for use before the drive, as well as throughout the donation process.
  • Measures will be taken to physically separate donors as much as possible and whenever possible to prevent donors from congregating in waiting and refreshment areas. In accordance with Governor Baker’s current Order, we will limit the presence of donors and staff at blood drives to no more than 25 people at the same time.   Excess donors will need to step away from the location of the blood drive (and maybe wait in the hallways or their cars.)  
  • Hand Sanitizer will be placed at Check-In, Health History and Refreshment areas. Donors are required to use hand sanitizer prior to touching tablets or laptops and before eating or drinking. Staff will sanitize all equipment and surfaces touched by donors between each donor using Sani-cloths or Cavi-cide.
  • The refreshment area will be completely Red Cross-supplied wrapped snacks. Tables will be separated so that full social distancing can occur.
