<br />Lake Oswego Prescription Delivery Pilot Project
<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 />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 />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 />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 />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 />Any media inquiries can be directed to Sergeant Tom Hamann at 503-635-0238.
