LifeShare officials said many donors have asked for the testing to determine if they have had or were exposed to the COVID-19 virus, and LifeShare is happy to offer it as a “thank you” to encourage the community to give blood during this crisis.

Individuals do not need to know their blood type but will need a photo ID and a mask to enter the bus.

Call 409-980-8214 for more information.
