I was finally able to work out everything between my doctor, CVS, and the insurance company and get my prescription filled today. I’m incredibly lucky that this issue was resolved in under a week, I know many people might be facing similar problems without such a quick fix.
As I pulled up to the drive-through window, I put on plastic gloves so I would avoid contact with the pharmacist. She was also wearing gloves. The clipboard and pen used to sign for the prescription were covered in plastic. The entire transaction was completed without any human contact.
I appreciate the precautions we both took. But I couldn’t help but wonder how long this will continue. At some point will this become habit- wearing plastic gloves to avoid touching? Will this be so normal that I won’t even think twice about it? These are such uncertain times we are living in…and the uncertainty of “normal” is most troubling of all.
