Was that just a cold you had a couple of months ago, or were you one of the lucky ones that caught the Covid and didn’t suffer much?
Vitalant (formerly United Blood Services) tests for Coronavirus antibodies when you donate blood.
Antibodies start to develop one to two days after infection and can linger in your blood from three to six months, maybe longer.
Demand for blood is high, and donors are scarce, as more people shelter in place. Demand for blood is especially high during the holidays. Feel free to speculate about that. Turkey carving accidents, maybe?
Save a life. Give blood. Get tested for Coronavirus antibodies.
