IPC guidance still applies to pharmacies

IPC guidance still applies to pharmacies

January 20, 2022

Following yesterday’s Government announcement that from next Thursday (27th January 2022) face coverings will no longer be mandatory in public places, pharmacy teams are reminded that the UK Health Security Agency’s infection prevention control (IPC) guidance remains in place for all staff and patients, in GP practices, dental practices, optometry practices and community pharmacies to ensure that everyone is protected.

Please continue to encourage patients to wear a face covering to keep staff and other patients safe.

Resources supporting the IPC guidance, including social media assets and posters to use at entrances to notify visitors that they need to wear a face covering, are available to download from the Campaign Resource Centre:
