Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19)

ARUP Blood Services is closely monitoring the evolving outbreak of Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) and following the latest recommendations from the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and Centers of Disease Control (CDC).

The demand for blood is still high across the country. As ARUP Blood Services prepares for the impact of a growing coronavirus outbreak, we encourage all healthy individuals to donate blood to replenish the blood supply.

To make an appointment or ask any questions about eligibility, please call 801/584-5272.

Blood donors must be healthy and feeling well to be eligible to donate. As a safety precaution, ARUP Blood Services is currently deferring donors for 28 days if they have:

  • traveled to areas with COVID-19 outbreaks as defined by the CDC.
  • lived with an individual diagnosed with or suspected of having COVID-19 infection, or
  • been diagnosed with or suspected of having COVID-19 infection.

Visit https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/travelers/index.html for detailed information.

If you get diagnosed with, or get exposed to individuals with COVID-19 infection, please notify ARUP Blood Services at 801/584-5272 to retrieve and discard any blood products donated by you in the 28 days prior to or after COVID-19 disease onset or exposure.
