    Blood centers are open but you have to do a call ahead appointment.

    Someone I know in the legislature said to pay attention today bc she has an important announcement. I’m skeptical as well.

    Blood centers are still open. Like @NorthCyd said, you need to set an appointment online and they have done away with walk ins.

    Source: gave blood on Wednesday

    I give plasma twice a week by appointment. I didn't know if an SIP would change blood and plasma.

    Shouldn't. My understanding is blood donation is still considered essential for the healthcare system. They’ve had to cancel their drives, to the point where the surgeon general has asked people to donate.

    The fact that the medical board, appointed by her, came out and said something seems to indicate the pressure will get to her.

    Who knows, maybe not.

    I don’t think she actually understands what people are calling for. I think that she thinks what people are calling for is an order where you can’t actually leave your house. I’m hopeful she just does what you are calling for and leaves it at that. If she doesn’t then I think we have more serious problems. I’m introverted so I don’t leave my house that much anyway but actually restricting me to that would not be good for my mental health. I’ve already had panic attacks fearing that. Maybe it is an irrational fear but it is absolutely terrifying to me. I can probably make do with it for a week or two but past that I wouldn't make it under that type of restriction.

    I’ve already discussed the possibility of moving back home but my parents are sleeping in separate rooms already to minimize their contact and they’ve taken over my old room.

    Fun fact: These press conferences take place at Joint Force Headquarters, just east of Camp Dodge. The basement of JFHQ is the designated command center for any and all activities concerning Iowa.

    If they're making any important announcements, they're burying the lede...

    The sign language lady can be kinda distracting, not saying we shouldn’t have her, but it’s like sub titles and I find myself watching her more.
