    Our actions

    CVS Health’s commitment to employees

    To help reduce the risk of exposure, we have eliminated non-essential business travel and large group meetings, transitioned many office-based employees to remote work, and taken steps to help protect the health of employees who continue to carry out important work on site at our facilities. We are committed to supporting our employees who may be required to undergo quarantine related to the virus.

    We’re also embarking on the most ambitious hiring drive in our company's history, with plans to immediately fill 50,000 full-time, part-time and temporary roles across the country.

    COVID-19 testing

    CVS Health is uniquely positioned to play a vital role in supporting local communities and the overall health care system in addressing the COVID-19 pandemic. Our ability to coordinate the availability of COVID-19 testing bolsters states’ efforts to manage the spread of the virus.

    We are expanding access to COVID-19 testing and expect to establish testing sites at up to 1,000 CVS Pharmacy locations across the country by the end of May.

    Looking ahead

    Through the work of the CVS Health Enterprise Response & Resiliency Team and Infectious Disease Response Team, we will continue to actively monitor the situation both at home and overseas for coronavirus-related risks. If you have additional questions, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the World Health Organization (WHO) provide valuable information.
