BECKLEY, WV (WOAY) – While restaurants, gyms and a variety of public buildings have closed, there are still plenty of people hard at work.
Pharmacists like those at Rhonda’s Pharmacy say they first saw hand sanitizer and face masks disappear from their shelves. Now, they’ve closed the store to prevent people from spreading sickness, limiting most business to a drive-thru window.
“If it’s something like an emergency, like a brace in case they have had surgery or a broken bone or something that needs to be braced, then what we’re doing now is we are taking their temperature and as long as they’re not showing a fever, we bring them into the store,” said Rhonda Rose.
Rose also says patients should look into refilling their prescription if they are a week to ten days away from their usual fill date.
