Medicinal Cannabis Industry Australia (MCIA) has undertaken consultation with the Federal and State Governments and has received confirmation that medicinal cannabis qualifies as an essential service under the public health orders issued by the States and Territories. The public health orders note that sectors/activities where working remotely is not an option, and getting medical care or supplies, are essential services exempt from the social distancing restrictions. Thus, companies will be working to keep the medicinal supply operational and will implement appropriate protocols and practices to ensure the safety of employees and minimise disruptions to supply of products to patients.
