Pharmacists test negative


HPS has confirmed that the 18 hospital pharmacists self-isolating in Sydney have returned negative COVID-19 tests

On Tuesday, the AJP reported that 18 pharmacists from St Vincent’s Private Hospital Darlinghurst dined at the Thai Restaurant in Potts Point on July 17.

After a restaurant employee tested positive to the disease, all people who had dined there between July 15 and July 25 were directed to be tested and self-isolate for 14 days since the last time they had been there.

HPS, which provides pharmacy services to the hospital, issued a statement saying the pharmacists had all been tested and were awaiting results, as well as self-isolating.

Now, it has issued an update stating that all 18 of the hospital pharmacists have tested negative to COVID-19.

“In accordance with a NSW Health directive these staff will continue to self-isolate until Saturday 1st August,” HPS said on Wednesday.

“St Vincent’s Private Hospital and the pharmacy have arrangements in place to continue pharmacy operations with patient and staff welfare the priority.”
