(St. Louis – January 13, 2021) St. Louis’ Accounting Auditor Darlene Green’s office is on Monday, February 8th, from 11:00 am to 3:00 pm in Room 208 for a semi-annual community blood drive with the American Red Cross. Organize. Of St. Louis City Hall.
Held annually during Black History Month, the supervisor’s February Blood Drive will feature Dr. Charles Drew, a prominent doctor and medical researcher who developed the first large blood bank in the early part of World War II. I praise you.
Due to the ongoing COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic, the Red Cross urgently needs the help of blood and platelet donors to meet patient care needs. In addition, there is a need for African-American blood donors for the treatment of sickle cell disease.
For more information or to schedule a donation reservation, call 1-800-RED-CROSS or visit.
- COVID-19 antibody screening: The Red Cross tests all donated blood, platelets, and plasma for COVID-19 antibodies. The test results will be published online about a week after the donation. An antibody test shows whether the donor’s immune system has produced antibodies against the coronavirus, regardless of the presence of symptoms. This is not a substitute for a diagnostic test.
- Donation safety: Each Red Cross Blood Drive and Donation Center complies with the highest standards of safety and infection control. Important services of the Red Cross have been approved by local and federal authorities, including the Department of Homeland Security, the CDC, the FDA, and the President of Surgeons. For more information on the Red Cross safety protocol, see COVID-19 and Blood Donation.
- Visit to City Hall: As a precautionary measure to limit the spread of COVID-19, visitors to the city hall must wear a mask or face cover and measure their body temperature upon admission. Those with a temperature of 100.4 or higher cannot enter. For more information on precautions for city hall visitors, please see the precautions for city hall COVID-19.
