At this time of heightened concern surrounding the coronavirus (COVID-19) we at Prometic Plasma Resources want to assure our donors, staff, and local community that your health and safety are our top priority. As a company we are closely monitoring and stringently adhering to the recommendations coming from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), Food and Drug Administration, Plasma Protein Therapeutics Association (PPTA) and any mandates issued by local, state, provincial and national governments.
Prometic Plasma Resources has always put donor safety before all else. We accomplish this by following the applicable State and Federal regulations as well as the additional health and safety standards recommended by our industry. The staff at Prometic Plasma Resources have completed extensive training in areas of hygiene and the practice of universal precautions to prevent the spread of infection.
Our plasma centers operate under stringent sanitary guidelines and are cleaned daily utilizing clinical strength disinfectants throughout the building. In addition, our staff are taking extra safety measures by disinfecting waiting areas, door handles, computer keyboards, faucets, equipment and other high traffic areas frequently throughout the day.
We are asking that you help ensure the safety of other donors and our staff by not visiting the center if:
- You have a cough, fever, shortness of breath or other cold or flu symptoms
- In the last 28 days, you have returned from international travel
- In the last 28 days, you visited a city or state with an increased incidence of COVID-19 infection
- In the last 28 days, you have had close contact with someone that is under quarantine or diagnosed with COVID19
We will continue to monitor this rapidly evolving situation and take additional steps as conditions and/or recommendations change.
Patients around the world suffering from rare, chronic illnesses need plasma derived therapies now more than ever. Your plasma donation continues to make that possible. At this time of national emergency, we thank you for your continued donations as we work together to make the world a better place.
