Expanding Access to COVID-19 Testing


On May 21, 2020, Gov. Sununu issued Executive Order #47, expanding access to COVID-19 testing via licensed pharmacists in light of the continued COVID-19 public health emergency. More specifically, licensed pharmacists may initiate, order, administer and analyze COVID-19 tests if certain requirements are satisfied. This expanded access to COVID-19 testing via licensed pharmacists is effective until the state of emergency is terminated, or the order is rescinded, whichever occurs first.

While the order does not directly impact benefits administration, employers should be aware of these developments.
