Making sure you have access to an adequate supply of your medications is our priority.
At this time, we do not foresee any disruptions to the supply chain as a result of COVID-19 that would affect your ability to fill prescriptions. Please note that occasional shortages or product recalls that are not related to the virus may happen.
As the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic continues to evolve, we understand that you may have questions or concerns. We are closely monitoring the situation, and because things are rapidly changing, we want to keep you informed and update you promptly of any new developments.
Pharmacies are considered essential businesses.
You may be seeing closures of non-essential business in your community, like restaurants, salons and some retail stores. Because pharmacies are considered essential, they are not subject to the same local or state guidelines for other businesses to close or reduce hours. Please note: Pharmacy store hours may be adjusted to restock and sanitize in accordance with COVID-19 guidelines, so check your pharmacy’s website for current hours of operation.
You can choose home delivery, at no extra cost.
With the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) recommending that people stay at home, especially those at high risk, we understand that you may not want or be able to visit the pharmacy to pick up your prescription medications. Home delivery is a good option to ensure you have the medications you need.
