Reston Bible Church
Reston Bible Church and Christian Fellowship Church will be sponsoring a blood drive on Saturday, January 16, from 8:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m.
Blood supplies are critically low. All mobile drives by Inova were suspended in early April due to COVID-19. Every three seconds someone in the U.S. needs blood and more than 31,000 pints of blood are used daily. However, less than 10 percent of Americans currently donate each year.
Only whole blood and double red types will be accepted for this drive.
This is another special Saturday drive to help replenish the depleted blood supply due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Our goal is to collect 60 units of blood that day. The drive will be held 8:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. in the RBC lobby to better provide a safe distance between donors. You will receive an email from Dale Peak confirming your appointment time. Thanks for your life-saving gift.
For a limited time, Inova Blood Donor Services is testing all successful blood donations for the COVID-19 antibody. This test will be performed in addition to the standard testing on all blood donations received. This test is for detecting the presence of antibodies against SARS-Co V-2 and is NOT intended for diagnosis or treatment of COVID-19. This testing is NOT testing for the COVID-19 virus. Donors must be healthy and well with no COVID-19 symptoms when presenting to donate. Only successful blood donations will be tested for the antibody. Donors will be notified of the results within seven days – via email for negative results and via phone for positive results.
This drive is being co-sponsored by Christian Fellowship Church. Donuts will be provided from 8:30 a.m. to noon.Register
This just in: Inova has relaxed their travel deferral requirements. Travel to a malaria country (e.g., Brazil, Haiti, India, etc.) now only carries a three-month waiting period, down from 12. In addition, some European travel restrictions have been downgraded. Click here for more information on eligibility.
