In the rapidly evolving circumstances surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic, it’s important to have the latest information regarding the coronavirus and how to limit its spread.

CVS Pharmacy® has emerged as a leader in providing both tele-medical consultations and free pharmacy deliveries to ensure its customers have everything they need as they practice social-distancing, or for others, self-quarantining. We’ve outlined the services CVS Pharmacy is offering their customers during these trying times and how CVS Pharmacy gift cards can easily help and provide aid to medical practices, businesses, and other organizations to keep their staff healthy and supported.

Stock Up on Essentials with CVS Pharmacy® Gift Cards

For those who run businesses, medical practices, and other organizations, taking care of your staff and letting them know you support them is critical. One way to ease stress and anxiety is by helping them stock up on the essential items they need with CVS Pharmacy gift cards

Something as simple as a $25 CVS Select® gift card can go a long way in helping purchase essentialsGift cards are versatile in that they can be used to buy a variety of household items at any CVS Pharmacy location, making it easy for your recipients to purchase what they need, when they need it. If you or your recipients are concerned about social distancing, or are actively quarantining, CVS Pharmacy is also offering free delivery on prescriptions and everyday essential items.

Free Delivery on Essentials While Social Distancing

We have all heard the term “social distancing” in the past weeks. It’s the practice of limiting physical distance and social contact with people to mitigate the spread of an infectious disease. This has taken the form of offices sending employees home to work remotely, school closures, events and other social gatherings being canceled.

How are we supposed to stock up on necessary medical and food supplies while practicing social distancing? CVS Pharmacy has several useful services that can help while you stay safe at home.

  • Free Delivery on Prescriptions and Other Essentials - Getting supplies delivered is a great alternative to going out and helps lower your risk of infection. CVS Pharmacy has a wide range of grocery, personal hygiene, and medical supplies (including prescriptions) that are eligible for free delivery. For people in high-risk categories for COVID-19 infections (older populations and immunocompromised individuals), delivery is not only convenient, but the best option to protect their health and ensure their homes are fully stocked with essential items.
  • Set up A Video Visit - If you’re concerned you may have COVID-19, CVS Pharmacy telemedicine services will allow you to connect with a health care provider through a computer or mobile device to have symptoms assessed from the comfort and safety of their home.
  • Get A Flu or Pneumonia Vaccine - As of today, there is no vaccine for COVID‐19, getting immunizations for other lung infections, like flu and pneumonia, is important, especially for those who have weakened immune systems.

More information is coming out each day about COVID-19 and how to reduce the spread of infection. Although we may be at home for the foreseeable future, we are all in this together. Reaching out to your teams, colleagues, staff, and employees is now more important than ever; it’s also important to support each other in whatever ways we can to boost morale. From our team to yours, stay safe.
