Loudoun Deputies to Deliver Medications!

Message from the Office of Blue Ridge District Supervisor Tony Buffington:

Sheriff's Office to Pick-Up & Deliver Prescriptions for Seniors & Those with Increased Vulnerability to COVID-19 Sent: April 15, 2020 Many thanks to Sheriff Chapman for implementing this helpful plan to assist our senior and increased vulnerability residents. Please help me share this important information with those who need it! Loudoun County Sheriff Mike Chapman announced yesterday a prescription pick-up and delivery assistance program for the county’s senior residents and those who are more vulnerable to Coronavirus (COVID-19). Members of the Loudoun County Sheriff’s Office (LCSO), in coordination with the resident, or their family, as well as local pharmacies, will pick-up prescription medications from Loudoun pharmacies and deliver the items to private residences in the county. To participate residents must contact the LCSO at 703-777-1021 to request this service. Residents may call 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Deliveries will be made during normal business hours. Members of the Loudoun County Sheriff’s Office who deliver the medication will wear a sheriff’s office uniform, will utilize personal protective equipment, and will maintain social distancing based on CDC guidance. “We want to ensure residents who are physically unable to get to their pharmacy and are in critical need of their medications can receive their prescriptions in a safe manner,” said Sheriff Chapman.   The service requires the resident to pre-pay for the prescription and confirm their pharmacy allows third-party pick-up for the medication. For health considerations, the LCSO cannot deliver to assisted living communities, care facilities, senior centers, or group homes.  The service will be provided through the duration of Virginia Governor Ralph Northam’s Executive Order which is effective until 11:59 p.m., Wednesday, June 10, 2020.  ### Coronavirus - We're in it together, we'll get through it together - Tony Be safe!
