Lake Oswego Prescription Delivery Pilot Project

Posted Fri, 03/27/2020 - 8:35am

LAKE OSWEGO – With Oregonians now under Governor Brown’s executive order to stay home, the Lake Oswego Police Department is following the lead of the Forest Grove Police Department in piloting a prescription medication delivery program for Lake Oswego Residents.

Starting Monday, March 30, 2020, and continuing through the end of the emergency order, Lake Oswego Police Department employees will be providing a free prescription delivery service for Lake Oswego residents. Anyone who is 65-years-old or older, or who has any serious underlying medical condition that would put them at a higher risk of severe illness due to COVID-19, can call the Lake Oswego Police Department at (503) 635-0250 to arrange for prescription delivery from a local Lake Oswego pharmacy. This service will be available between 8:00 A.M. and 3:00 P.M., Monday through Friday, for the duration of the emergency order.

Participants will also need to contact their pharmacy themselves to order and pay for the prescription(s), and to let them know that a Lake Oswego Police employee will be picking them up. At this point, the only pharmacies that are participating in this program are the Rite-Aid pharmacies at 90 B Avenue and 16390 Boones Ferry Road, in Lake Oswego. The participant will need to present valid identification to the Police employee when the prescription is delivered.

During deliveries, the Police employees will wear personal protective equipment and will follow social distancing guidelines to avoid spreading the virus. The employees will always be in official attire and will carry identification.

This is a pilot project, so we will monitor this program daily to ensure that it is still helpful and appropriate. If, at any point, we decide that it is no longer needed or workable, we will end this service.
