With curbside service becoming the new norm, businesses who have never done anything of the sort are learning to adapt.

At Mula's Pharmacy, legally , customers are allowed inside, but they have closed their doors to the public and are doing a few more things to minimize physical contact and the potential spread of Covid 19.

"We're still filling meds. We're doing everything the same inside, the only difference is we're coming out to the car," says Mark Mula, who owns Mula's Pharmacy.

He's spending his days under a tent just outside his pharmacy's doors. Mula wears a mask and gloves and carries a walkie talkie to reach employees inside, exclusively offering curbside pickup for the time being at his pharmacy and gift shop.

Mula says he feels called to take his job as a healthcare professional a step beyond filling prescriptions.

"The main goal for us is to protect my staff. If I can protect my staff from any exposure at all then I can protect the public," says Mula.

The pharmacy now has an additional pharmacist on each shift and extended delivery services, doing whatever it takes to minimize contact and keep the community healthy.

"We're going to get through this and we're going to get through this as a community and we're here to help and that's it. We've got to be patient and get through this moment," says Mula.
