NOTICE:  There is a critical blood shortage of blood as supplies have been significantly impacted by the coronavirus pandemic.  Shelter in place orders led to 566 blood drives being cancelled since early March in Arizona alone, resulting in a loss of more than 17,000 uncollected blood donations.  That , coupled with a resumption of surgeries and other medical procedures as stay-at-home restrictions were lifted, has caused a 25% increase in the need for blood during the past several weeks.  ALL BLOOD TYPES ARE CRITICALLY NEEDED RIGHT NOW, with an especially high need for type O, A-negative and B-negative red blood cells.  In addition platelets are always needed by patients for cancer treatments, surgeries, and emergencies.  DONORS ARE STRONGLY URGED TO GIVE BLOOD AS SOON AS POSSIBLE.
