Pharmacists and other health care professionals are more necessary now than maybe ever before and that's why CVS is taking care of them.

CVS announced this morning the plan to pay out bonuses to employees required to be at each store. The bonuses range from $150 to $500.

Pharmacists, store associates, managers, and other health care professionals will qualify for the bonus.

Among other announcements made by CVS, they are said to be filling 50,000 temporary, full and part-time positions. These include store associates, delivery drivers, distribution center employees, and customer service members.

CVS Health employees will be allowed 25 fully covered days of backup care, along with 24 hours of paid sick leave and paid 14-day leave if an employee tests positive for COVID-19.

Rockford and Loves Park CVS locations are currently hiring pharmacy technicians and managers, shift supervisors, and retail store associates among other positions.
