KHSL - As people stock up on groceries and supplies, the Centers for Disease Control is urging everyone to remember their prescriptions.
But for some who can't make it, pharmacies are changing their delivery policies.
CVS will deliver your prescription to your home for free through May 1. Walgreens is waving delivery fees for all eligible prescriptions.
The idea is to reduce foot traffic inside the store and limit vulnerable populations' exposure to the virus.
"It's going to make all the difference," pharmacy owner, Kristin Holmes said. "So, we are actively encouraging, when we know those patients and they're elderly, they have diabetes or asthma, or anything that really puts them at risk - where if they got this thing they would be seriously ill, we're really encouraging them to stay home. Let us bring your meds to you."
Some insurers are also changing policies to help, like waiving early medication refill limits.
