    MAGEE, Miss. — Mississippi Blood Services (MBS) will be holding a community blood drive inside the Magee Civic Center, Monday, July 6, from 10 a.m. – 4 p.m. Donors who complete a successful donation will receive a T-shirt and be tested for the COVID-19 antibody. The test results will be emailed to donors between 48 hours to one week after the donation, so donors are asked to make sure their emails are current when going through the history process. Please note: this is NOT a diagnostic test for COVID-19. If you are running fever, feeling unwell and/or think you may have COVID-19, please do not try to donate.

    MBS will be taking all precautions recommended by the FDA and CDC to protect both donors and staff, including practicing social distancing as much as possible and sanitizing areas after each donation. MBS staff are required to wear personal protection equipment, including masks and gloves, and donors are encouraged to wear masks, as well.

    Donors are encouraged to visit the MBS website at msblood.com to make their online appointment. Donating blood is safe, simple and it saves lives. Donors must be at least 16 years old (16-year-olds need signed parental consent), weigh at least 110 pounds and have a valid ID.
