Red Cross now testing all blood donations for COVID-19 antibodies

The Red Cross says it urgently needs blood donors and is offering an incentive for people who give.

They are now testing all blood, platelet and plasma donations for COVID-19 antibodies.

The antibody test will be sent to a lab and results will be available in seven to ten days, which donors can access on the Red Cross Blood Donor App or in the donor portal at

You can schedule a donation appointment online, by calling 1-800-RED CROSS (1-800-733-2767) or enabling the Blood Donor Skill on any Alexa Echo device.

Added bonus… if you donate in June, you’ll receive a $5 Amazon gift card.
