WOONSOCKET, R.I. — The following is attributed to Karen S. Lynch, CVS Health® President and Chief Executive Officer, following her participation in a White House supply chain meeting earlier today:

“We’re seeing progress with port congestion and staffing levels as a result of the administration’s recent actions, and the outlook for maintaining stocked shelves improves each day. The focus on increased availability of over-the-counter COVID-19 tests has also had a meaningful impact and provides countless families with protection and peace of mind during the holiday season.

“With regard to our pharmacies, we’ve been able to utilize our expertise and extensive partnerships throughout the supply chain to ensure the continued availability of prescription medications since the onset of the pandemic."
