Blood drive full up

The Door Peninsula has escaped the severe blood shortage that exists across large parts of the country. American Red Cross Team Supervisor Dori Meneghini says the organization should be able to build up supplies for later in the year through blood drives that are tightly controlled.


Social distancing has reduced the number of stations at area blood drives like the two held at the Door County YMCA this week, causing all slots to be filled by appointment only. Donors were met at a side entrance by volunteers wearing surgical masks who took their temperature before allowing them in which increased the screening time for each person. Together, those factors are keeping blood drives from needing walk-ins. Click here for a link to register for an upcoming blood drive.
