Face Covering

Face Coverings in Pharmacies

Face Coverings in Pharmacies

The Government has announced that from Thursday 27th January 2022 face coverings will no longer be mandatory in public places. However the UK Health Security Agency’s Infection Prevention Control (IPC) guidance remains in place for all staff and patients (unless exempt), in GP practices, dental practices, optometrists and pharmacies.

Please continue to encourage customers to wear a face covering when in your pharmacy to keep both staff and other patients protected.

If you haven’t already, or need a new copy, download and print a poster to display in the windows in your pharmacy:
