At CVS, disinfectant wipe stations are available to wipe down carts and baskets. Floor postings serve as reminders for social distancing. Employees will be wearing CDC-approved gloves and masks. There are also fewer signatures required on PIN pads during checkouts.
To remain safe in drive-thrus, it is good practice to wear a pair of gloves when receiving your order. But be mindful to not touch your face with a gloved hand. If making a payment, try not to use cash. Aside from card transactions as a suitable alternative, virtual payment (ApplePay) is an even better idea to cut down on physical interaction. If you have to sign for something, use your own pen.
CVS stores are also set to donate $5 million worth of seasonal supplies in a bid to offer ways of human connection in spite of quarantine. These supplies can include spring-themed cards and treats and can be added to a pick-up order.
Download the Rx Local app to manage your medication, order refills, view contact options, and set medication reminders.
