The American Red Cross said they’re now facing a “severe blood shortage,” as blood drives across the country continue to be cancelled as concerns over the novel coronavirus pandemic grow….

If you are capable of safely donating blood and you are in a low risk group regarding COVID-19, please find a way to make a donation this weekend. I’m scheduled to donate a pint on Thursday morning. It will be an excellent excuse for a face to face conversation with people that I am not related to.
We’re in this together, so let’s start bleeding.
