Entity/Public Space Stock Epinephrine

Stock epinephrine is rapidly moving beyond the school walls and out to public venues – from theme parks, restaurants and sports arenas to daycare centers and more.

Thirty-two states have now passed what are called “entity laws” (as of October 4, 2018), legislation that permits venues to maintain an epinephrine auto-injector, with the intention of reducing the time it takes to get lifesaving epinephrine to a person having a sudden anaphylactic reaction.
