California is asking everyone who tested positive for COVID-19 and survived to donate blood so they can use those antibodies to help currently ill individuals.

Who can donate COVID-19 plasma?

  • A person who had a test that showed coronavirus infection,
    AND
  • Has felt well for at least 14 days,
    AND
  • Passes the usual rules for blood donation. 

Most blood centers require a negative swab test if you plan to donate before one month has passed since you recovered. The blood center may also have other rules.

You can find a donation center at: https://covid19.ca.gov/plasma/.
