Donating blood still allowed during ‘stay home’ orders

LA CROSSE, Wis. (WKBT)- While most people are being asked to stay home in Wisconsin, those who want to give blood donations are exempt from that rule.

The Versiti Blood Center of Wisconsin donor centers, including the location in Jackson Plaza in La Crosse, and community blood drives across the state remain open.

Healthy donors are needed right now to make sure there’s an adequate blood supply.

Because of the generous response from blood donors so far, they say it’s best to schedule an appointment.
