Walgreens limiting hours, closing some stores
Due to surges in COVID-19 cases and a shortage of labor, Walgreens has adjusted operating hours at, or temporarily closed, a limited number of stores. While the vast majority of Walgreens locations are open and operating with normal hours, Johns Hopkins USFHP members may encounter unexpected changes.

Early refill restrictions waived on prescription for at least 30-day supplies
Members can also consider getting a 90-day supply of maintenance medications you take on a regular basis. Visit COVID-19 – Frequently Asked Pharmacy Questions or our Pharmacy & Prescription Drug Benefits page to learn more about your prescription coverage.
