COVID-19 RESOURCES FOR PHARMACY BOARD LICENSEES

Please read the statements below for the latest information regarding pharmacy practice and the recent outbreak of COVID-19.

Emergency Management Assistance Compact

On March 23, 2020, Governor Noem issued Executive Order 2020-07 (https://covid.sd.gov/docs/2020-07.pdf) which recognizes the licenses of medical professionals licensed in another state in accordance with the Emergency Management Assistance Compact. Pharmacists licensed in other states have the authority to practice in SD based on an active license in another state. They do not need to gain another license in SD. The Board of Pharmacy recommends that if you are utilizing the services of a pharmacist licensed in other states that you verify the licensure status of that individual. Please contact our office with any questions that you have during this Coronavirus Pandemic.
