CVS and home delivery service DoorDash have announced a new partnership that will allow consumers to have OTC medications, grocery products, and other products delivered to their front doors as part of same-day delivery services.

The expanded delivery services aim to allow customers to continue shopping while staying safely at home during the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic, according to a press release from CVS. The partnership joins other efforts by CVS during the pandemic, including waiving all prescription delivery fees through June 30.

“This partnership allows customers to get the non-prescription daily essentials they need, while continuing to practice social distancing,” said George Coleman, MBA, senior vice president of merchandising for CVS Health, in a statement.

The service does not require a delivery time slot or pre-scheduling, and more than 3000 items are available on the DoorDash app, including health and beauty products, grocery staples, OTC items, and household products. All deliveries will be no-contact by default, allowing the delivery driver to leave the order in a secure location chosen by the customer.
