Keeping you & your family informed about the coronavirus
As a pharmacy and healthcare organization, our mission is to consistently deliver the medications you and your family depend on. Our team is committed to managing any potential impact the coronavirus (COVID-19) has on pharmacy operations. Rest assured plans are in place to continue prescription deliveries throughout this situation.
Prepared for impacts
We are prepared should COVID-19 impact our patient services. As a national healthcare company with pharmacies located throughout the United States, medication fulfillment is unlikely to be disrupted. We are working closely with the U.S. Post Office/DHL e-commerce, FedEx and UPS to prevent possible disruption in delivering medications to patients.
What is COVID-19?
COVID-19 disease is caused by a virus called SARS-CoV-2, a newly identified type of coronavirus also determined to cause an outbreak of respiratory illness, first detected in Wuhan, Hubei Province, China. This outbreak began in early December 2019 and continues to grow.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) believes at this time that symptoms of COVID-19 may appear in as few as two days or as long as 14 days after exposure (incubation period is believed to be roughly 10-14 days). The symptoms of this virus are difficult to distinguish as they are similar to those of the common cold:
- Shortness of breath
- Fever (may or may not be present)
Tips for preventing the coronavirus
Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth
Clean and disinfect all surfaces frequently
Cover your coughs and sneezes with a tissue
Stay home when you are sick
Wash your hands with soap and water for 20 seconds — especially after coughing or sneezing
