Interim Infection Control Guidance on COVID-19 for Personnel at Blood and Plasma Collection Facilities

Protect the health of staff, volunteers, and donors by reinforcing adherence to routine infection prevention and control measures, including hand hygiene practices, environmental infection control, and PPE.

Support and educate staff and volunteers about the symptoms of COVID-19 so that they can evaluate themselves and donors for symptoms and set up the facility to minimize spread.

It is essential to continue collecting blood and blood components to support healthcare delivery. This guidance is for administration, staff, and volunteers at blood and plasma collection facilities.
