People may also consider physically distancing from others where possible.

We regularly review our cleaning products and processes.
Additional wellness measures
Donors must complete a pre-screening questionnaire on the day of their appointment to determine if they are in good health and eligible to donate. Donors can preview these questions in advance here.
For everyone’s safety, employees and volunteers at Canadian Blood Services are vaccinated against COVID-19. To help safeguard our environment, we strongly encourage all donors entering our collections events to be fully vaccinated too. Donors will not be asked for proof of vaccination, and we will not turn away a donor who is not vaccinated.
Hand sanitizer and other hand washing means are available throughout the donor centre.
