In response, they have increased capacity at their donor centers by extending hours and opening for extra days each week.  These modifications will provide controlled, safe environments for healthy donors.   In addition, the U.S. Surgeon General -- Dr. Jerome Adams -- encourages people to donate blood during the coronavirus crisis: "You'll feel good about it, and you'll be helping your country and community  during this crisis. And you might even save a life." https://youtu.be/qCDZLUl3ngA 

Healthy individuals are needed to step up and donate blood; it is vital for patients in need of life-saving blood transfusions!  The NYBC asks that you encourage colleagues, friends and the community to make an appointment donate blood if they are able.  Potential donors can:
