The coronavirus pandemic, and the subsequent stay at home orders, has had some type of impact on everyday life in the Tri-State as most of us limit our time out of the house to help slow the spread of the virus. For the American Red Cross, that limited time has had a dramatic impact on the local blood supply. Now that Governor Eric Holcomb is slowly beginning to ease restrictions with his "Back on Track" plan, representatives with the Red Cross have set up several blood drives over the next week to give you a chance to help bring supply levels back up.
