Expanding Remote Work for Pharmacy Interns and Pharmacy Technicians

SB 57 was signed into law by Governor Sununu on June 11, 2021, expanding the opportunities for remote work being done in a pharmacy. Pharmacy technicians and pharmacy interns are now allowed to remotely perform non-dispensing related tasks.
