Face coverings and PPE in pharmacies – advice from 19th July

July 16, 2021

The Prime Minister announced that the majority of legal restrictions will be removed from 19th July 2021, including the legal requirement to wear face coverings in shops and pharmacies.

Although face coverings will be optional and social distancing will not be legally necessary from this date, NHS England and NHS Improvement (NHSE&I) has highlighted in their Primary Care Bulletin (issued 8th July 2021), that current Infection Prevention Control (IPC) guidance remains in place.

Full details can be found on the PSNC website.
