Pharmacy contractors in Devon are advised to display new patient information posters about Covid-19 in places where they can be seen before patients enter their premises.
Three posters, made available by PHE on the 29 February 2020, cover general advice to patients, affected areas and more detailed information on the affected Italian towns and should replace any existing posters currently displayed at entrances to pharmacy premises and waiting areas.
