The health and wellbeing of patients and staff at Te Aro Physiotherapy & Pilates is of the utmost importance. As COVID-19 continues to escalate, we are letting you know that we are doing everything we can to maintain a safe and healthy environment here at the Clinic. Here is what we are doing in regards to Health & Safety:
If you have any cold or flu symptoms, are diagnosed with COVID-19 or are in isolation, we do have an option to be able to continue your rehab via Telehealth video and phone consultation. PLEASE DO NOT come to the Clinic if you are feeling unwell. We can change your appointment to Telehealth appointment if needed and then send you a link to the video call before your appointment so that you can link in with your physio via your phone.
What you can do to decrease transmission
Try to minimise bringing family members with you unless you need a support person AND importantly please do not bring any of your children in with you if they are sick.
Cough or sneeze into your elbow or by covering your mouth and nose with tissues.
Put used tissues in the bin or a bag immediately.
Wash your hands with soap and water often (for at least 20 seconds).
Try to avoid close contact with people who are unwell.
Don’t touch your eyes, nose or mouth if your hands are not clean.
Avoid personal contact, such as kissing, sharing cups or food with sick people.
Clean and disinfect frequently touched surfaces and objects, such as doorknobs.
