Following the Lead of the Centers for Disease Control & Prevention
At PCA Pharmacy, the health and well-being of our customers and employees is always our first priority. Therefore, we are taking extra precautions over the coming weeks and months to ensure that our customers remain guarded against the spread of viral infections. We are following recommendations from the CDC, CMS, and/or state officials.
Additionally, we are providing our employees, customers, visitors and vendors with ongoing education regarding proper hygiene practices. This includes heightened awareness about the importance of hand-washing, coughing and sneezing etiquette, and the frequent sanitizing of all surfaces.
We understand that we care for our country’s most vulnerable population, and we are committed to ensuring their health and happiness. Every member of our team is dedicated to this mission, and we will always operate with our customers’ best interests at heart.
