During this unprecedented time, our priorities have been and continue to be to protect the health and safety of our employees and leverage our expertise in managing complex logistics to deliver critical medicines and medical supplies to healthcare providers on the front lines of treating this pandemic.

We’re deeply committed to supporting and protecting our team members, many who are on the frontline playing a critical role in helping to ensure that healthcare supplies and medicines are available for healthcare workers and patients who need them during this critical time.

Here’s how McKesson is supporting its employees during this time:

  • Extended medical benefits covering COVID-19 related visits, treatments and testing
  • Expanded telehealth options allowing employees to receive care from the safety and comfort of their home
  • Emergency paid time off (PTO) and a PTO donation platform for employees impacted by COVID-19
  • Mandatory telecommuting for non-essential office employees
  • Awarded approximately $30 million in special one-time bonus payments to recognize frontline workers and other staff for their hard work during this time
  • Provided $8 million in support for employees and communities impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic with grants from the McKesson Foundation and investments in McKesson’s “Taking Care of Our Own Fund”
  • Added technology resources and support for working remotely

Following CDC guidelines, McKesson has also taken the following steps to promote safety in its distribution centers and offices:

  • Placement of hand sanitizer and sanitizing wipes throughout the workplace including updated posters and other reminders for employees to wash or disinfect their hands before touching their faces and other times throughout the day
  • Ongoing practice of social distancing throughout our distribution centers to avoid unnecessary proximity where feasible, including entrances and exits to the buildings that must remain secured due to regulatory requirements
  • Disinfectant cleaning throughout the day with multiple cleanings for high-traffic areas like the restrooms and common areas as well as high-touch tools and surfaces
  • Providing employees with a thermometer so that they can take their temperature before coming in to work
  • Making face masks available to employees and allowing them to wear their own personal facial coverings at work
