Red Cross plans local blood drive
Blood Drive

MONROE — The American Red Cross will host a blood drive from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. June 24 at the Monroe Bible Church, 2613 8th Ave. 

They will be testing for COVID-19 antibodies at all blood drives starting June 15. This test is being offered as an additional service on all completed blood donations. The test is authorized by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration and will indicate if the immune system has produced antibodies to the coronavirus, regardless of whether symptoms were present. This test is not to diagnose current symptoms. Results of your antibody test will be available in your Blood Donor App or in your donor profile on about one week after donation. 

Appointments are encouraged by calling 800-733-2767.
