If there is one thing we have seen since the Coronavirus pandemic started, its that our communities come together. There has been fear and panic, but there have been many people helping one another and giving back. How can you give back? One way you can really make a difference right now, is by donating blood.
Many hospitals are experiencing blood shortages due to COVID-19, and some are even having to consider closing their doors because of it. When COVID-19 hit our communities, schools, churches, dentists, doctors and so many other businesses had to shut there doors. And do you know where a lot of blood drives take place? In those same places. Because of that, many blood drives have been canceled for the foreseeable future. Blood transfusions are needed for premature babies, women in labor, people with blood disorders, people who have experienced a trauma, and so many more things. Blood saves lives. Please consider donating or even sponsoring and putting on a blood drive.
Here at Bio-One and Best Option Restoration, we strongly believe that we can make a difference in our communities by putting on blood drives with Vitalant. Bio-One has been on the front lines decontaminating homes and businesses due to COVID-19. We use chemicals that are EPA approved for COVID-19, have the proper PPE, and are trained for this specialized decontamination. So, if you come to one of our blood drives, be assured that we will be taking every precaution to keep the space clean and safe. It will be decontaminated prior to the event starting and after it is over. We will also be decontaminating the bathrooms throughout the day. Vitalant has also put standards in place during the COVID-19 pandemic to uphold the CDC recommendation for social distancing (each area will have at least 6 feet from the other areas). We have 2 blood drives coming up and hopefully more in the near future.
Please, reach out if you would like to set up your own blood drive. We can get you into contact with the rep in your area and help you get the ball rolling. Lets keep supporting our communities while still staying safe and being conscious of the precautions set in place.
