The Denton County community is in need of volunteer plasma donors who have recovered from COVID-19.

People who have recovered from the novel coronavirus may produce beneficial antibodies in their plasma, and these antibodies may help current COVID-19 patients, according to Denton County. In Denton County alone, about 250 people have recovered and 330 people have it, as of Monday.
