COVID-19 Resource Page 



CPS is working hard, as we all are, to try to keep up with COVID19 information. Here we have provided some basic links which can take you to more in-depth information at those sites. We also attempt to post information important to pharmacy practice in context of COVID-19 in Colorado. It is in no way a comprehensive list of information, and please know that we cannot confirm it will always be the latest as things change minute to minute.  

 

If you have suggestions or items you think should be here, please contact us at [email protected]!

  • Colorado (DORA): DORA Actions to Implement Governor’s Directive

    In addition to foregoing existing statutory authority for emergency assistance by healthcare professionals, and in light of the Governor’s directive to take action to expand the healthcare workforce so as to address the Disaster Emergency, DORA has identified the following specific statutes and regulations as preventing, hindering, or delaying necessary action in coping with the Disaster Emergency identified in the Governor’s Executive Order 20-003 and which therefore are temporarily suspended pursuant to § 24-33.5-704(7)(a), C.R.S.:


    Suspension of Pharmacy Board Rule 6.00.30, which sets forth the qualifications for pharmacists to engage in drug therapy management and thereby restricts pharmacists from conducting screening tests for the Coronavirus, so as to ensure that pharmacists may conduct screening tests in pharmacies and other testing centers.
