Caring for Our Community – COVID-19

Caring for Our Community

 

Protecting the health, safety and wellbeing of Pharmasave customers and staff is always our highest priority, but particularly during the rapidly evolving COVID-19 health situation.

We are joining our community in preventing the spread of the coronavirus by taking extra precautions. We will continue to provide our customers with the most up-to-date information, while also supporting their changing needs during the pandemic.

Pharmasave wishes you and your family continued health during this time.

Getting Your Medications

How to get your medications if you have COVID-19 symptoms or have been told to self-isolate:

If you have symptoms of fever, cough or trouble breathing, do not visit the pharmacy.

You may notice that our phones are busier than normal so please have patience with us while we work to meet everyone’s needs. There are many ways for pharmacists to help you get your medications during the COVID-19 outbreak. If you have a new prescription or refill, we offer other convenient options to help you get your prescriptions filled. For instance, you can take advantage of our eCare@Pharmasave suite of digital health tools.

Visit Pharmasave.com or download our eCare@Pharmasave app to:

  • Refill prescriptions previously filled at our location by using the prescription number
  • Transfer prescriptions from any other pharmacy
  • Include special instructions for contactless delivery or pick-up requests

If you have completely run out of your medication and do not have a current prescription, call your regular Pharmasave. During the COVID-19 outbreak, our pharmacists’ priority is to ensure that you have the medications you need, even if you have run out of refills

Not sure how to get in touch with your pharmacy? Use our store locator for help.

COVID-19 Self-Assessment Tools

Is it Allergies or COVID-19?

How to tell the difference

There’s nothing unusual about suffering from seasonal allergies this time of year. That is, there never used to be – until COVID-19 came along.

Now, what’s making this allergy season out-of-the-ordinary is that some allergy symptoms overlap with symptoms of COVID-19.

Minimizing the Spread

Tips for protecting yourself, your family and your community:

Shop Smart

This great video produced by Retail Council of Canada and its grocery and drug store retail members provides important tips that you can follow to ensure you stay safe while shopping and help to keep front-line workers in stores safe as well! We’re all in this together and we can all do our part. #ShopSmart

Effective Hand Washing 

  • Wash your hands frequently with soap and water for at least 15-20 seconds (This is equivalent to singing the “Happy Birthday” song twice)
  • If you don’t have access to soap and water, use a hand sanitizer with alcoholic solutions or gels
  • If possible, remove all hand and wrist jewellery and ensure that you scrub under your fingernails
