Ocular Tissue Donation: EEBA Donor Screening Guideline for SARS-Cov-2
This Guideline has been formulated to assist eye bank procurement and retrieval staff in their routine donor screening for SARS-Cov-2 and we trust that the pocket chart format will be useful and practical.
Nevertheless, this document should be used in conjunction with local/regional/national exclusion and deferral criteria determined by competent health authorities, risk assessment instructions from the ECDC, and the selection/exclusion guidelines proposed by GAEBA.
In addition, the social anamnesis of each potential donor should be included into each individual risk assessment to determine donor eligibility (e.g. includes close contact to COVID-19 infected persons, vaccination for COVID-19).
