BD)--Yet another good reason to donate blood. Blood donors will know more about the status of their immunity to COVID-19 thanks to a new antibody testing method offered by the Oklahoma Blood Institute. The new testing is offered through January 31. Individual results will help donors understand their bodies’ immune response, whether those antibodies come from natural infection or the vaccine and boosters. Previously, Oklahoma Blood Institute’s ability to test for donors’ COVID exposure was limited to a detectable immune response from prior infection. The improved method will also detect if an individual has antibodies from receipt of a COVID-19 vaccine. The testing is free to all donors as a regular part of the donation process.

HI)--Enid’s downtown ice skating rink wrapped up its second season on Sunday. Natalie Rapp, executive director of Main Street Enid said Holidays on Ice had to close for the equivalent of a week throughout the season due to weather, but still hosted around 10,000 visitors since it opened on Nov. 20. The ice skating rink saw skaters from the Enid area and all across the region, especially during The One Enid’s Christ Tree and Enid Lights Up the Plains, which had tens of thousands of attendees in 2021. Rapp said Holidays on Ice will be back next year, with a larger ice skating rink and more outdoor Christmas lights. Holiday on Ice was brought to Enid by a partnership between Stride Bank Center and MSE, with Williams Media Group as the title sponsor.
