<br /> <br /> <br />For Immediate Release Contact: Tom Hamann, Sergeant <br />March 25, 2020 503-635-0238 <br /> <br /> <br />Lake Oswego Prescription Delivery Pilot Project <br /> <br />LAKE OSWEGO – With Oregonians now under Governor Brown’s executive order to stay home, <br />the Lake Oswego Police Department is following the lead of the Forest Grove Police <br />Department in piloting a prescription medication delivery program for Lake Oswego Residents. <br /> <br />Starting Monday, March 30, 2020, and continuing through the end of the emergency order, <br />Lake Oswego Police Department employees will be providing a free prescription delivery service <br />for Lake Oswego residents. Anyone who is 65-years-old or older, or who has any serious <br />underlying medical condition that would put them at a higher risk of severe illness due to <br />COVID-19, can call the Lake Oswego Police Department at (503) 635-0250 to arrange for <br />prescription delivery from a local Lake Oswego pharmacy. This service will be available between <br />8:00 A.M. and 3:00 P.M., Monday through Friday, for the duration of the emergency order. <br /> <br />Participants will also need to contact their pharmacy themselves to order and pay for the <br />prescription(s), and to let them know that a Lake Oswego Police employee will be picking them <br />up. At this point, the only pharmacies that are participating in this program are the Rite-Aid <br />pharmacies at 90 B Avenue and 16390 Boones Ferry Road, in Lake Oswego. The participant will <br />need to present valid identification to the Police employee when the prescription is delivered. <br /> <br />During deliveries, the Police employees will wear personal protective equipment and will follow <br />social distancing guidelines to avoid spreading the virus. The employees will always be in official <br />attire and will carry identification. <br /> <br />This is a pilot project, so we will monitor this program daily to ensure that it is still helpful and <br />appropriate. If, at any point, we decide that it is no longer needed or workable, we will end this <br />service. <br /> <br />Any media inquiries can be directed to Sergeant Tom Hamann at 503-635-0238. <br /> <br />### <br />
