A couple of weeks ago, we reported that the pharmacy at the center of the “Patient Blackout” outbreak in New York City had been closed for nearly a week.
At the time, we also noted that it was a pharmacy with a strong safety record.
However, according to the pharmacy’s Facebook page, the company has now closed its doors.
“We have been advised that the premises at the location will remain closed until further notice.
We would like to thank our customers for their patience and understanding while we work to resolve this issue,” the post reads.
“In light of this, we have decided to close the business until further orders are placed.
Thank you for your patience.”
The post has since been deleted.
The pharmacy is a chain of pharmacies in Brooklyn, New York.
It’s closed on Sundays since the outbreak began, and on Friday, the website said the pharmacy would be closing on Sundays for a second time.
That means there will be no access to the medication, although some patients can still get prescriptions for it on Sundays.
“There’s been a lot of pressure to close, but we feel we’re still in a position where we can make this happen,” the pharmacy posted in an update on Saturday.
“The best thing we can do right now is take care of our patients and the communities we serve and make sure that our staff is safe and well.”
The pharmacy has also posted a new notice on its Facebook page.
“Please note that we will be closed for the rest of the week, which is a bit of a shock to our customers and staff,” the note reads.
