    COVID FAQs — If you have a fever the day of your appointment, you must reschedule. Wait at least 14 days before donating if you have been exposed to someone who has or may have COVID–19, have recently been tested, and are pending test results for COVID–19, or if you have a confirmed active case of the virus.
