The Company remains vigilant in not only leading Coronavirus response in Florida but also educating and applying best practices among all locations and referring physicians. We have encouraged all patients and physicians to do what is necessary to prevent acute health care episodes resulting from chronic conditions. The Company has recommended all patients secure 90-day supplies of all maintenance medications during this time. The Company has been procuring additional supplies of medications in the event shortages occur in the supply chain due to the pandemic.
Progressive Care’s pharmacies are also uniquely capable of mobilizing its infrastructure to deliver thousands of prescriptions per day in Florida. The Company has issued several PSAs in support of the effort to contain the virus in the community and believes that limiting patient exposure to public spaces is critical to that effort. All locations have increased their sanitation and disinfection efforts, while encouraging patients to utilize its free home delivery service. We are in the process of establishing a line of communication with CDC and Florida Department of Health as we prepare our locations to be utilized to coordinate emergency responses.
