LifeShare Offers Free COVID-19 Antibody Tests for All Blood Donors

    The testing will begin today and end on Friday, July 31st. The test can indicate whether someone has been exposed to COVID-19.

    Over the past several weeks, LifeShare has received countless inquiries about antibody testing for COVID-19. LifeShare is now able to provide this service as a way to encourage people to donate blood. “When the pandemic first moved into our region, we saw a tremendous outpouring of support from our blood donors,” says LifeShare Regional Director Elizabeth Cunningham. “Since then, we’ve seen a decline in the number of people giving blood while at the same time, hospitals are beginning to address their backlog of elective procedures.”
