ON CAMPUS

UNCA Campus Blood Drive, Be a Part of UNCA’s Life Saving Legacy!

Safety protocols that will be followed for blood drives (including but not limited to)…

  • Screening & Personal protection: 
    • Everyone (staff, donors, volunteers) participating will be masked 
    • Everyone will have their temperature taken
    • Hand sanitizer will be available at every stage of process
    • Gloves will be available to donors 
      • *Staff are required to wear gloves and change them often
  • Social Distancing: Blood Drive will follow social distancing and room capacity guidelines. 
    • All individuals will be 6 feet+ apart. The blood drive goal has been lowered and spread the drive out over 2 days to make this possible.
    • Donors will be processed on an appointment only basis 
    • There would be no waiting area, instead donors will be texted when there is a bed ready for them
    • Canteen/recovery area will be in a separate room with pre-selected/pre-packaged drinks and snacks (so donors are only touching what they eat)
  • Cleaning:
    • All surfaces will be completely disinfected before and after each donor (including pens, laptops, laminated information packets, beds/chairs, etc)
