COVID-19

The 2019 Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19)

 

Janzen’s Pharmacy has been actively monitoring the global outbreak of coronavirus and taking steps to ensure that we can continue to fulfil our role as healthcare providers. Our continued & resolved focus is on ensuring our patients are provided with all their necessary medications in a timely manner.

At Janzen’s, we are considering all of our options to preserve the health and well-being of our customers and our team. We have increased our efforts to maintain a clean and sanitary environment and will continue to implement strategies that will keep our team & patients safe so we may provide service throughout the outbreak.

We will continue to offer free delivery of prescriptions.  At this time, we ask that anyone who is experiencing any cold or flu-like symptoms; or has come in close contact of someone with those symptoms, to notify out staff and take advantage of our delivery service. 

We will be happy to consult with you over the phone and ensure that you will get the things you need to provide you with the care and comfort you require, while supporting social distancing recommendations, and keeping others safe in our community.

If you are in self-isolation, we can still arrange to provide you with the items you need in a safe manner utilizing doorstep drop offs and accepting electronic forms of payment.

In addition, we want to remind you of the following tips to stay healthy and prevent the spread of illness.

  • Wash your hands thoroughly and frequently with water and soap.
  • If water and soap are unavailable to you, the next best option is alcohol-based hand sanitizer.
  • Cough or sneeze into a tissue or the bend of your arm, not your hand.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, or mouth with unwashed hands.
  • Use social distancing techniques including contactless greetings.
  • Avoid contact with anyone who may be sick.

If you are feeling unwell, we advise you to stay home. We would be happy to talk to you through a phone call and deliver medications and supplies to your house.

Try as much as possible to consume a healthy diet, with plenty of vegetables, protein and less sugar.

If you think you are not getting enough nutrients in your diet, we would be happy to speak to you and give advice on which supplements and vitamins would be beneficial for your needs.
