COVID-19 Update 3/24/2020

***FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE***
Bedard Pharmacy & Medical Supplies has teamed up with Allen Manufacturing in Lewiston, Maine, to begin manufacturing and distributing cloth face masks. As manufacturing begins to ramp up, we expect these face masks to be available at every Bedard location beginning on Friday, March 27th.
If you bring any unused N95 masks to any of these locations, you can trade those in towards our cloth face masks. All N95 masks that we collect will be distributed to local front-line medical professionals, including area hospitals.
Help us protect those who are protecting us. If you stockpiled N95 masks, or have some unused ones in your toolbox, bring them in. We will happily take any type of unused N95, surgical, medical and construction grade masks you may have.
If you do not have any to exchange, these cloth masks will be $5 with all proceeds going towards expanding the PPE supply chain locally.
If you are elderly, immunocompromised, or considered high risk, we will gladly give one to you free of charge.
If you drop off any masks before this date, we will add you to our waiting list and call you when our cloth masks are available.
There will be more information released about this in the upcoming days.

COVID-19 Update 3/19/2020

Currently, we are not selling any PPE (personal protective equipment like masks, gowns, etc..) to any new customers. If you regularly order these items, do not worry, we will still get them for you. During this difficult time, we are doing our part to make sure front-line healthcare personnel are getting what they need. We are doing this by limiting how much demand we bring into the supply chain as well as making sure we have stock to provide to the facilities we service.
We hope you understand this policy and please refrain from calling us with questions on these items. We are trying to keep our lines open to continue to service the community’s healthcare needs.
Please look out for each other. Help when you can. Stay in contact with friends, family, and neighbors. Socially isolate if possible.
We can get through this together.
Thank you,
Your Bedard Team

COVID-19 Update 3/18/2020

In order to continue to protect our community and limit the potential spread of COVID-19 we have made the decision to further limit access to our buildings by closing our front stores. Our locations will remain open however we ask that you call when you arrive so we can bring your items out to you. We are doing this to keep sufficient space between people to prevent the spread of this virus.
Please utilize our free delivery service, however if you do come to our stores please follow these protocols.
For Bedard Medical Auburn: Please park in the nearest available spot to front of the entrance of Medical Supplies. Call 207-784-3700 and notify the staff what you are here for and the color, make, and model of your car so that we know where you are. We will then do everything we can to expedite your order.

COVID-19 Update 3/17/2020

Out of an abundance of caution and in order to better protect our community and our staff we are making a few policy changes.
1. We are no longer providing fittings for product. This is to limit physical contact within our facilities and prevent community spread of the virus in the event of outbreak.
We will be providing patients with paper tape measures and instructions on how to measure themselves for product. If you know you need something, call us before you come in. We can walk you through measuring yourself at home.
2. We are not accepting any returns on retail products. All retail sales are final. Contact us for details.
This is already a policy for many of our products, but it has been expanded to everything we carry. This is to limit a potentially contaminated product from coming back into our facility and possibly going back out into the community. This is temporary until the outbreak is over.
We are going to great lengths to ensure the protection of the most vulnerable in our community and are actively working on expanding our services to provide more to those who need support during this time.
Please look out for each other. Help when you can. Stay in contact with friends, family, and neighbors. Socially isolate if possible.
We can get through this together.

COVID-19 Update 3/16/2020

Bedard has been caring for the Maine community since before the 1918 Spanish Flu and every epidemic, pandemic, and common cold since. We are working diligently with our distributors and local long-term care facilities to make sure that we continue to provide the community with the level of healthcare it needs. Whether you are 100 days or 100 years old we will continue to be here for you.
Here are some steps Bedard is taking to protect and care for the most vulnerable among us.
1. Please use our free delivery service! Whether you can’t or do not want to risk going out to get your prescriptions or medical supplies, we will bring it to you. Our delivery team is taking extra measures to protect themselves and our patients. You will see them utilizing PPE (personal protective equipment), as well as cleaning/sanitizing themselves and their equipment regularly. They will probably ask you to use your own pen to sign your paperwork.
We also deliver other items, like toothpaste, Tylenol, and many other items you may need. Just ask, we probably have more than you realize.
2. We are limiting access to our facilities. You can still come see us, our front stores are open and being cleaned regularly through out the day. However, if you are sick, please give us a call and we can bring your items out to your car or deliver them to your home. Just let us know so we can be prepared. You can also utilize our drive through to pick up your supplies. Any non-essential personnel are not permitted on the premises, no solicitors or salespeople, patients only. Physical contact is not permitted, no handshakes please!
3. We are actively monitoring our staff. We are requiring any staff who have travelled to any high-risk location to stay home and self-quarantine. We are also asking any staff who are beginning to show any signs or symptoms of illness to stay home.
4. We are limiting contact between our staff. Out of an abundance of caution we have limited contact between our departments. Each department now has their own break area and has been asked to stay in their designated area. In addition, any staff that can work from home is required to do so.
While we have implemented many precautions to protect our community, keep in mind, while we don’t anticipate any, their may be slightly increased call and wait times.
Please look out for each other. Help when you can. Keep an eye on your friends and neighbors. Socially isolate if possible.
Remember, we are Mainers, we can get through this together.
Thanks,
Your Bedard Team
