Kalamunda Physiotherapy response to COVID-19

Due to the growing concerns with the ongoing situation with COVID-19 we want to provide you with some information about what we are doing as a business.

Firstly, we want to let you know that as long as everyone is healthy and able it is business as usual.

We already have stringent health and safety practices in place which includes:

  • Regular cleaning of the practice
  • Daily cleaning of the equipment after classes and appointments
  • Hand sanitising between each patient

There is also available to clients hand washing facilities and anti-bacterial wipes to use prior to and after appointments or classes.

As per our regular illness management, we ask clients to use the same precautions and courtesy you would if you had a cold or flu.  Please contact us by phone if you are unwell or have been given a directive to self-quarantine so we can reschedule your appointment.

Please be assured our staff will adhere to the same standards expected of you and we will remain transparent with you if any of our staff have been affected by the COVID-19 virus.

Some tips for staying healthy:

  • Wash your hands regularly and for at least 20 seconds with soap
  • Keep your hands out of your mouth!  The virus needs to get inside your body to make you sick and this means there is more of a chance of this happening.
  • Limit contact with others if you have just met or unsure if they are unwell
  • While we all need to live our lives, re-think attending concerts and sporting events where there is a greater chance of the virus spreading quickly.
  • Eat healthy and drink plenty of water.

Where to go if you are feeling unwell and need to be tested?

COVID clinics

Who should attend?

People will only be tested if they have  fever and/or respiratory symptoms such as shortness of breath, cough or sore throat AND documented evidence of:

  • overseas travel in the last 14 days (provide boarding pass or flight booking or airline bag tag with name and date of travel) OR 
  • close contact of a confirmed COVID-19 case (provide name of case)

Go to Royal Perth, Sir Charles Gairdiner or Fiona Stanley Hospitals where they have set up a testing centre.  You will required to wear a face mask and sanatise your hands.  Then you will be screened for testing, and if tested will be asked to self-quarantine while you wait for the results.

Your GP will not be set up for testing so don’t attend there as you may end up infecting others.
