The Community Blood Center of the Ozarks has announced a change of location for the scheduled Blood Drive Thursday in Harrison.
The Blood Drive that was scheduled for North Arkansas Regional Medical Center will now be a Blood Mobile in the JC Penny Parking Lot running from 10 am- 6 pm. The move is due to the restriction on visitors at the Hospital due to the COVID-19 Virus Outbreak.
A release from the CBCO states this drive is important as over 75 Blood Drives have been cancelled between now and the end of April due to COVID-19 Virus concerns. While Blood Reserves are at the recommended three-day inventory level, CBCO officials urge continuing donations to make sure the levels stay at regular levels.
