Kinney Drugs is the latest to add acrylic shields to protect those working at its stores amid the Novel Coronavirus pandemic.
The shields will be installed at all of the chain’s pharmacy counters and front of the store checkout counters to protect workers and customers from the spread of COVID-19.
The stores have been deemed essential under Governor Andrew Cuomo’s shutdown list.
“Just this past Saturday, we put this plan into motion. Here we are, less than one week later, and all 97 stores have them installed. Our construction and merchandising operations teams were nothing short of amazing,” said Rebecca Bubel, R.Ph., president of Kinney Drugs.
They have a total of 97 stores across New York and Vermont.
