one positive thing to come from Covid lockdown - I'm not travelling to malarial places, so I can give blood. Donated again today, second time in three months after once in seven years.

The American Red Cross seems to also have amended their question re: recent travel. You still have to answer if you traveled outside of US/Canada within the last 12 months. Normally you'd have to list all the countries you visited. (For some folks, this step takes a while! ) But now, if you answer that you traveled outside of US/Canada within the last 12 months, they ask a follow-up: have you been outside of US/Canada within the last 3 months? If you answer "no" to the 3-month question, you simply move on with the screening.

I noticed that too...

...but this change in policy would have been significantly more useful when we were all traveling more often instead of during a pandemic...
