Face coverings become compulsory for retail staff

September 25, 2020

It is now compulsory for community pharmacy staff to wear a face covering in areas that are open to the public and where they come, or are likely to come, within close contact of a member of the public.

However, there is existing Public Health England guidance on the wearing of face masks in community pharmacy, for staff in both clinical and non-clinical roles, which is applicable to all primary and community health care providers in England.

PSNC information on the use of facemasks is available on their PPE webpage.
