Urgent Need for Blood Donations at Antelope Valley Hospital
Community encouraged to donate during COVID-19

(LANCASTER, Calif. — April 3, 2020) — Antelope Valley Hospital (AV Hospital) is sending out an urgent call for healthy community members to donate blood. Donations are down as people shelter-in-place during the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.

“As the only Level 2 Trauma Center in the region, we must maintain an adequate blood supply for our patients,” said CEO Ed Mirzabegian. “We encourage those who are healthy and able to donate at this time.”

The AV Hospital Blood Donor Center is complying with guidelines set by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), such as spacing chairs six feet apart, moderating the number of donors in the Center at one time, adhering to thorough cleaning practices and encouraging people to make appointments ahead of time instead of walking in to donate.

Watch Out for COVID-19 Scams
During the COVID-19 crisis, I want to make sure you stay safe. Right now, criminals are taking advantage of the COVID-19 crisis through a variety of scams.

There have been reports of:

  • Fake cures for COVID-19

  • Emails from entities posing as the World Health Organization or the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention

  • Malicious websites and apps that appear to share virus-related information to gain and lock access to your devices until payment is received

  • Illegitimate or non-existent charitable organizations seeking donations[/LIST}

    If you think you are a victim of a scam or attempted fraud involving COVID-19, please report it by:

Now that Congress passed the $2 trillion dollar Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act, business owners can now apply for an up to $10,000 cash advance grant through the Small Business Administration’s Economic Injury Disaster Loan program.

This is to help small businesses to meet their expenses - rent, mortgage, utilities, etc. You can seek these loans directly from SBA at covid19relief.sba.gov. Funds will be made available within three days of a successful application, and this loan advance will NOT have to be repaid.

There is also $349 billion included to ensure small businesses can continue to pay employees with the Paycheck Protection Program. The loans are up to $10 million for small businesses and non-profits. They are administered by the banks directly and you need only to work with your lender.
