Introduction

On March 11, 2020, COVID-19 was declared a pandemic by the World Health Organization. Since that time, the global outbreak of respiratory infections has continued to increase, with older adults and vulnerable patients with existing health problems appearing to be at the most risk. ACP is working closely with Alberta Health, Alberta Health Services, the College of Physicians and Surgeons, and other partners as part of a coordinated response to protect the health and safety of Albertans.

During this pandemic, it is critical that pharmacists and pharmacy technicians remain well-informed. ACP appreciates your efforts to support the health of Albertans during these challenging times.
