The COVID-19 pandemic has shown that many of our typical day-to-day errands aren’t absolutely necessary to be handled in-person. Doctor’s visits, grocery shopping, important meetings — you can get almost all your to-do’s done right on your couch just by clicking a few buttons online.
That includes services essential to your health; even items as sensitive as a prescription can now be ordered, filled, and “picked up,” all without you ever having to leave your home. These delivery services are making it far easier to weather the storm, allowing many people to remain inside and away from large crowds, potentially safeguarding their health in the process.
