The Department of Labor & Industries (L&I) and the Pharmacy Quality Assurance Commission (PQAC) issued new COVID-19 safety guidance for pharmacies and pharmacists. The guidance serves as a reminder to follow key safety measures to ensure safety for patients and pharmacy staff. The guidance contains six key measures that address social distancing, patient screening, source control measures, PPE, CDC guidance for vaccination operations and necessary staff training. WSHA provided feedback to PQAC as it worked to develop the document. We are pleased to see that many of our recommendations are included in the final document. WSHA’s bulletin on the guidance is available online here.
