COVID-19 Notice

SPT preceptors and pharmacy technician applicants should follow their pharmacy site’s policies (e.g., mandatory vaccination) and physical distancing public health guidelines to protect their patients, their colleagues and themselves.

SPT preceptors are frontline pharmacy practitioners whose first priority is providing care for their patients while safeguarding themselves, their staff and their patients. Not all pharmacy technicians and pharmacists who have undergone the screening and training processes to become a SPT preceptor are currently available.

The pharmacy technician applicant’s patience and understanding regarding limitations related to the COVID-19 pandemic are appreciated.
