Risk of Coronavirus (COVID‑19) Transmission at Cornwall Physio
The Government published a Statutory Instrument on 26th March 2020, no. 350 ‘The Health Protection (Coronavirus, Restrictions) (England) Regulations 2020’ confirming that it is lawful for a Physiotherapist practice to remain open. It further defines those people who are classed as ‘vulnerable’.
In accordance with up-to-date Government and Public Health England guidance Cornwall Physio has taken precautions to protect our patients and team members. These include rigorous sanitization procedures. We also request that any symptomatic patients follow NHS
guidance on self-isolation and refrain from visiting the practice at this time. Despite this, there is a risk of transmission of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) and it is important that you are aware of the risk.
