Covid-19 Information

Please see below on how Roz Physio & Pilates is dealing with the recent Coronavirus outbreak and how this affects my Physiotherapy and Pilates provision.

Government Guidance (14/3/20) | Hand Washing | Video Calls | Contact

Update 21/3/2020: Please note that given recent Government guidance, I am no longer booking face-to-face classes or sessions.

I will instead be providing Video calls for group and 1:1 Pilates and Physiotherapy Sessions. I am not providing massages at this time.

While a video call would not involve any hands-on treatment/adjustments, I can still complete some assessments, give you advice (pain management tips and techniques, ergonomics, posture, activity modification, bladder and bowel retraining etc) and guide you on exercises. Prices for Physiotherapy sessions and group 1:1 Pilates classes have been discounted to reflect this.

Please find further details about how Video Calling will work / how to set it up here.

Hand washing

From the World Health Organisation

My facebook page also has a great video of Mez (from Caterpillar Music) showing how to wash your hands. The video is designed for kids, not adults, but the song matches beautifully with making sure she covers all areas of her hands – worth a watch. I’m now silently singing this as I wash my hands!

Government Guidance – as of 14/3/2020

This is the up-to-date information from the government website (public & healthcare professionals) regarding coronavirus (the bits in italics are direct quotes):

  • The most common symptoms of coronavirus (COVID-19) are recent onset of a new continuous cough and/or high temperature (37.8 degrees celsius or above). 

If you have these symptoms, however mild, stay at home and do not leave your house for 7 days from when your symptoms started. Currently, the whole household does not have to self isolate if one is affected, although this may change in the near future.

You do not need to call NHS 111 to go into self-isolation. If your symptoms worsen during home isolation or are no better after 7 days, contact NHS 111 online. If you have no internet access, you should call NHS 111. For a medical emergency dial 999.

Do not go to a GP surgery, pharmacy or hospital.
You do not need to contact NHS 111 to tell them you’re staying at home.
We will not be testing people who are self-isolating with mild symptoms.

  • Wash your hands more often than usual, for 20 seconds using soap and hot water, particularly after coughing, sneezing and blowing your nose, or after being in public areas where other people are doing so. Use hand sanitiser if that’s all you have access to.
  • To reduce the spread of germs when you cough or sneeze, cover your mouth and nose with a tissue, or your sleeve (not your hands) if you don’t have a tissue, and throw the tissue away immediately. Then wash your hands or use a hand sanitising gel.
  • Clean and disinfect regularly touched objects and surfaces using your regular cleaning products to reduce the risk of passing the infection on to other people.

At the current time and based on our understanding of what is known of COVID-19 and other similar respiratory viruses, it is likely that older people and those with chronic medical conditions may be vulnerable to severe disease. As more information emerges, recommendations may change.
