Rx pharmacy opens near me
Texas board of pharmacists has ordered a pharmacy in a rural Texas town to open after the pharmacy’s co-owner complained of an outbreak of the coronavirus.
Rx Pharmacy was founded in the rural town of St. Charles last year.
The company’s owner, Paul Smith, has since said he has had to close a pharmacy he owned in St. Louis, but said the situation in Texas is different.
He has filed a petition with the Texas board seeking to reopen the pharmacy, a city clerk said Thursday.

St. Francis is about 40 miles northwest of Houston.
Smith told the board the pharmacy was closed on Feb. 5 because of a COVID-19 outbreak.
He said the store was closed because of lack of patient inventory.
