Germs can live on some surfaces for hours.
To protect yourself and others:

This is the best way to slow the spread of almost any germs, including Corona virus
EPS Phase 4
In EPS Phase 4, patients without a nomination will be given an EPS token (patients may refer to these as ‘paper copies’ of their prescription) at the GP practice. This will be given to the patient (or their representative) or collected as part of a prescription collection service. Patients can take these tokens to any pharmacy in England.
