Thanks to Samantha for sharing:

“not sure if this has already been circulated but if you donate blood with the Red Cross, they’ll do a free COVID antibody test! Just went yesterday to their location by the White House and only took about an hour!”

From the Red Cross:

For a limited time, the American Red Cross will test all blood, platelet and plasma donations for COVID-19 antibodies as an additional health service to our donors. This testing may provide critical insight into whether donors may have possibly been exposed to this coronavirus. The Red Cross is committed to helping others in meaningful ways during this pandemic.

Please note the Red Cross is not testing donors to diagnose illness, including COVID-19. If you feel unwell for any reason, please postpone your donation. Individuals who believe they may be ill with COVID-19 should not present to donate until they are symptom free for 14 days and feeling well and healthy.

Make an appointment.”
