Seasonal Monitoring for WNV to begin June 1, 2019

0 Comments | | Return |

Seasonal monitoring of epidemic triggers for West Nile Virus (WNV) NAT tested donations will begin June 1 and continue through October 31, 2019. Should your facility have a reactive donation, CTS will send the WNV Alert email to inform you of your WNV reactive samples and request donor information. If you receive this email, please reply within 12 hours with the needed donor information (home city, state and zip code) as well as blood donation product type.

Again this year, CTS has distributed the 10 regional email groups (same as the 10 DHHS Regions) for you to notify other organizations serving overlapping and adjacent areas. In addition, you can access the most current reactive WNV sample information on the AABB West Nile Virus Biovigilance Network website.

Please contact your Customer Service Manager with any questions.
