I would check with your local blood services.

Sometime in the early 1990's, I got a similar letter from the New York Blood Center regarding a positive test for something related to one or another variety of hepatitis (I don't recall the details). I was checked out by my doctor, who found no problems.

Several years later, I got a letter from the blood center saying that I could donate again. When I went to donate again, they checked in their computer and said I was fine to do so.

I don't know why they changed the policy, but you should check with your local blood organization to see if you fall in the same category.
