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.

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.
