Red Cross to Resume Mask-Wearing Protocols Indoors in Public Areas

08/02/2021 5:20 PM | Anonymous

On Friday, July 30th an important safety update was communicated: Red Cross to Resume Mask-Wearing as Pandemic Safety Protocols Continue to Evolve. The American Red Cross has determined that all individuals – both vaccinated and unvaccinated will wear masks indoors in public areas across the country.

  • Effective Monday, August 2, Red Cross will require all employees, volunteers, shelter residents and class participants to wear a face mask at Red Cross offices, facilities and any indoor operations while engaging in services on behalf of the Red Cross. Red Cross also strongly encourage all blood donors to wear masks, and will make them available at blood drives wherever possible. 
  • By August 9th, Red Cross believes that it will have communicated its updated masking policy to blood donors and blood drive hosts, and have a sufficient quantity of masks available, to require all blood donors to wear a mask while minimizing potentially challenging conversations between blood donors and staff members.
