Tavyside pharmacy,  Boots and Daylewis pharmacy are delivering to patients already on their delivery service list, but due to the unprecedented demand they are not able to take on new customers at present. Until this issue is resolved they are advising those who cannot leave their home due to corona virus symptoms or other underlying health problems to nominate a representative, a neighbour or relative (or a volunteer from Tavistock Locals Help), to pick up the prescription on their behalf.

Anyone who is able to get to the pharmacy without assistance can do so as this is an essential service, but they must comply strictly with the government’s guidelines on social distancing and handwashing.

MORRISONS: TAVISTOCK JOB VACANCIES – Coronavirus is affecting people’s livelihoods daily with work drying up especially for self employed people – as most of you know I am the Store Manager of Morrisons store in Tavistock and as you have seen in the press and on the news our stores are under real pressure due to customers stocking up ahead of potentially having to be isolated. Anyone looking for temporary work to see themselves through please get in contact as we have numerous stores across the county who could definitely do with a helping hand.  Email is james.lloyd@morrisonsplc.co.uk

The above home delivery services are limited and are essential for those who are not able to leave their home due to ill health or because they have corona virus symptoms.  The Government is allowing other members of the public to make essential trips to buy food and pick up health products.
