The NYBC is offering free antibody testing to blood donors until the end of February. It does not test for Covid-19.

Donors must self-screen prior to their appointment. Those with symptoms; who had close contact with someone diagnosed with or suspected of having Covid-19 in the last 14 days; or who have been diagnosed with or suspected of having it are asked not to donate.

Donors must be at least 17, or 16 with written consent from a parent or guardian, and weigh at least 110 pounds. Donors over 76 can participate if they provide a physician’s letter.
