To Our Apothecarium Community,
We were notified yesterday, 7/26/2020, that an employee at our Plymouth Meeting dispensary location tested positive for COVID-19. Our thoughts are with our employee and all of those affected by the global pandemic. Since being notified, we temporarily closed the Plymouth Meeting location for in-store service, and a professional cleaning team was hired to clean the facility the morning of July 26th. We have since re-opened in-store service. All employees are being tested as a precaution, and we will continue to monitor regularly.
We want to reiterate that The Apothecarium is taking every precaution necessary to maintain safe working conditions for our employees and the patients we serve. We continue to enact a number of in-store safety measures to ensure that our patients can continue to access medical cannabis in the safest way possible. While The Apothecarium has always adhered to stringent safety and sanitation protocols, additional procedures have been implemented since the onset of the pandemic. These include but are not limited to:
- 1 Taking employee temperatures at the beginning of each shift
- 2 Thoroughly cleaning equipment and high-traffic areas
- 3 Using hand-sanitizer between transactions
- 4 Requiring non-essential employees to work from home
- 5 Encouraging pre-ordering for pickup
- 6 Practicing social distancing from fellow employees, customers and patients
We will continue to take every precaution to protect the health and safety of our patients and employees within our dispensaries. On behalf of all of us at The Apothecarium, we are grateful for your continued support, and we appreciate your understanding and cooperation as we navigate this situation together. We aim to remain transparent with our community every step of the way and invite our patients to reach out to us with any questions or concerns.
The Apothecarium Team
