Newport donates blood

Newport High School student Tristian Scarborough, 17, gives blood for the first time at the Newport Church of the Nazarene on Wednesday, March 18. The American Red Cross blood drive was originally scheduled to take place at Newport High but relocated due to school closures. In an effort to keep the drive free of coronavirus, a volunteer was posted at the door to take the temperature of anyone entering the room — a temperature of higher than 99.6 meant no entry. Additionally, volunteers wiped down all seating and equipment frequently, and blood donors went through routine testing and questioning, which includes questions about recent travel.
