Red Cross Blood Drive at City Hall

08/12/20, 11:00 AM - 3:00 PM

Notice: Because of the Global Pandemic declared on March 11, 2020, and subsequent Federal, State and Local Public Health Orders, for the protection of the public and in keeping with CDC guidelines, meetings will be restricted to no more than 10 persons maintaining a distance of 6 feet apart. Many meetings will be held via video/teleconference in lieu of in-person meetings. Please review the meeting notice closely for instructions on where/how to join the meeting.

Community Event

Admission: Free.

The office of St. Louis Comptroller Darlene Green will host its semiannual community blood drive with the American Red Cross on Wednesday, August 12, from 11:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. in Room 208 of St. Louis City Hall.

For more information or to schedule an appointment to donate, call 1-800-RED-CROSS or visit redcrossblood.org.

All donors are welcome at the blood drive. With no known end date to the COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic, the Red Cross urgently needs the help of blood and platelet donors to meet the needs of patient care.

COVID-19 Screening
For a limited time, the Red Cross is testing all donated blood, platelets and plasma for COVID-19 antibodies. Results of the test will be available online about one week after donation. The antibody test indicates if the donor’s immune system has produced antibodies to the coronavirus, regardless of whether symptoms were present—it is not a substitute for a diagnostic test.

Donation Safety
Each Red Cross blood drive and donation center follows the highest standards of safety and infection control. Red Cross essential services have been approved by local and federal officials, including the Department of Homeland Security, CDC, FDA, and the Surgeon General. Learn more about the Red Cross safety protocols at: COVID-19 and Blood Donation.

Visiting City Hall
As a precaution to limit the spread of COVID-19, visitors to city hall are required to wear masks or face coverings and will have their temperature taken at the point of entry. Anyone with a temperature of 100.4 or higher will not be permitted inside. Learn more about precautions for city hall visitors at: City Hall COVID-19 Precautions.
