Pharmacies advise masking up at drug counters

Pharmacists across the region’s 1,900 pharmacies are requesting people to continue sporting masks, mainly around the pharmacy counter, out of respect for those who may be weak. 

Bertrand Bolduc, president of Quebec’s order of pharmacists, said multiple customers suffer from various diseases, implying they face higher chances of contracting COVID-19.

“We won’t play police, but we’d want people to wear a mask,” Bolduc stated. “Our team will also continue to wear it.”
