- Wiping down donor-touched areas and equipment after every collection with disinfectant. This includes, donor beds, registration tablets, blood-pressure cuff and hemoglobin sensors.
- Donors hands are sanitised when they enter the bus and their temperature is taken immediately.
- Only 4 donors are allowed on the bus at a time.
- Only two of the beds can be used at a time
- Using sterile collection sets for every donation.
- Conducting donor mini-physicals, including temperature check to ensure donors are healthy and well on the day of donation.

- As an additional safety measure, OneBlood is asking people who have traveled to countries at high risk for the coronavirus to self-defer from donating blood for 28 days upon returning to the United States.
- Team members who are sick or not feeling well do not report to work.
- Donors must sign-in. If there is a wait, they can wait, or we can text them once a spot is available on the bus.
