Canadian Blood Services reports an increase in blood donations that has helped maintain its inventory in the short term, but advises supporters that this effort is a marathon, not a sprint.
Its permanent collection site at 3909 Grand Marais Rd. E. is one of just 32 across the country. In compliance with the Public Health Agency of Canada regulations on physical distancing during the state of emergency, it is currently welcoming only people with appointments. It is open some extra days this month, including 3 to 7 p.m. Monday, April 13 — Easter Monday.
