Prescriptions to be delivered via drones to Florida retirement community

UPS and CVS are starting a drone delivery service of prescription drugs to Florida's largest retirement community in early May. The Villages, a retirement community northwest of Orlando, is home to over more 135,000 people, most of which are deemed high-risk for Covid-19. “Our new drone delivery service will help CVS provide safe and efficient deliveries of medicines to this large retirement community, enabling residents to receive medications without leaving their homes,” Scott Price, UPS chief strategy and transformation officer, said. UPS received government approval for their drone airline last fall.
