1. Very sad, but how many were infected by this technician. I have to go to the pharmacy at least

twice a week for family members. I always wear a face mask. Rarely do the pharmacy workers wear them. It should be mandatory for all pharmacy staff, all supermarket workers, all employees facing the public to wear masks.

2. I agree. They are exposed to a large number of people every day and should were PPE.

Question is, where they are going to get all this PPE?

5. Don't they touch the pills with ungloved hands, when they count them out.

The virus stays alive for three days.

6. I use a mail order pharmacy

for all of my regular meds. I get a 90 day supply.

If it's just a single round of treatment, like for antibiotics, I do use the local CVS. But that is not common.

I have a medicare Rx plan thru United Healthcare for $26 month. Most of my meds are free for the 90 days.
