Bloodworks Northwest reports that the blood supply is now stabilized, but they anticipate future shocks to the blood supply in the coming days and weeks. They are asking donors to schedule future appointments in April and May now to ensure blood stays available in our community as we weather this pandemic together.
Donating blood is safe, and blood donors are exempt from Governor Jay Inslee’s Stay Home, Stay Healthy stay-at-home order.
Teens: first time 16 or 17 year old male donors who weigh at least 114 pounds and First time 16 or 17 year old female donors who weigh at least 125 pounds may donate with a Bloodworks Northwest permission slip signed by a parent or guardian.
