CDC Recommendations for Pharmacies
Protect Your Staff
COVID-19 Prevention in the Workplace

The safety of pharmacy staff is a top priority during the COVID-19 pandemic. The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) recommends that pharmacists and pharmacy technicians should wear a face mask while they are in the pharmacy. The CDC has also advised that everyone entering the pharmacy should wear a face mask regardless of symptoms, except for children under the age of two. In addition to masks, OSHA's guidance on safety in retail pharmacies recommends gloves and face shields be worn when providing immunizations or close contact clinical services.
