TULSA, Okla. — Pharmacists are one of those on the frontlines of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Since the outbreak hit Tulsa, Freeland Brown, a pharmacy in the city, went in short supply of several items. Thermometers are sold out, ibuprofen and blood pressure medications are running low.

Stephen Strong, a pharmacist with Freeland Brown, said, “We are starting to see some shortages on certain drugs. We have three different suppliers we buy from. We source it out. If one doesn't have it, we go to the next."

Strong says they even had to move hand sanitizers, masks, and rubbing alcohol off the shelves because people were hoarding them.
