Coronavirus / Covid

We are carefully monitoring the Public Health England and Gov.Uk websites for the latest advice and information on the Coronavirus https://www.gov.uk/guidance/coronavirus-covid-19-information-for-the-public.

Stay indoors and avoid contact with other people immediately if you’ve travelled to the UK from:

  • Hubei province in China in the last 14 days, even if you do not have symptoms
  • Iran, lockdown areas in northern Italy or special care zones in South Korea since 19 February, even if you do not have symptoms
  • other parts of mainland China or South Korea, Hong Kong, Japan, Macau, Malaysia, Singapore, Taiwan or Thailand in the last 14 days and have a cough, high temperature or shortness of breath (even if your symptoms are mild)
  • other parts of northern Italy (anywhere north of Pisa, Florence and Rimini), Cambodia, Laos, Myanmar or Vietnam since 19 February and have a cough, high temperature or shortness of breath (even if your symptoms are mild)

Lockdown areas in northern Italy:

  • in Lombardy: Codogno, Castiglione d’Adda, Casalpusterlengo, Fombio, Maleo, Somaglia, Bertonico, Terranova dei Passerini, Castelgerundo and San Fiorano
  • in Veneto: Vo’ Euganeo

Special care zones in South Korea:

  • Daegu
  • Cheongdo

Additionally if someone in your Household has returned from these specified countries and are having symptoms – then you need to be very alert to the recommendations and guidelines.

Lots of people at the moment have normal colds and bugs and we think that while it’s important to keep a perspective, we also as care providers have to be very vigilant to protect our clients, many of whom have concurrent health frailties, and also our staff.

Our standard Recommendation is that you should not attend for physiotherapy treatment if you are suffering with a cold or flu symptoms. In the current circumstances, we would ask you to telephone the clinic if you have any doubts as to whether you should attend a scheduled appointment.
