  1. are drug stores like cvs pharmacy closed?

  2. Post Office is not mentioned. What is a transfer station?

  3. Drug stores usually are open for the early part of the day. The post office is a county office. It will be closed. The transfer station is the waste transfer station, a place where people without trash service can bring their trash. People can also bring all types of recyclables and turn in hazardous materials for proper disposal. It's called the Shady Grove Waste Transfer Station and is located on Rockville Pike.
