Corona Virus info update for patients
As a valued patient at Rutland Physical Therapy, your health and well-being are important to us. Our decision to temporarily close has been based on the advice of the Canadian Physiotherapy Association. We will keep you informed on further developments. We hope to be open mid-April.
Here are some links to up to date information.
- BC COVID-19 Symptom Self-Assessment Tool
- Vancouver Coastal Health has issued a Public FAQs on CoronaVirus (COVID-19). You can go to their website for the newest information: http://www.vch.ca/about-us/news/vancouver-coastal-health-statement-on-coronavirus
Patients with COVID-19 infection have reported symptoms as follows:
Mild to severe respiratory illness with symptoms of fever, cough, and difficulty breathing. COVID-19 is believed to be spread mainly by coughing, sneezing or direct contact with a sick person or with surfaces they have recently touched.
WASHING YOUR HANDS THOROUGHLY AND OFTEN WILL HELP PROTECT YOURSELF AND YOUR FAMILY FROM COVID-19.
Refer to hand-washing guidance here:
o Avoid touching your face, nose, or mouth with unwashed hands.
o Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
o Clean and disinfect surfaces that are frequently touched.
o When sick, cover your cough and sneeze and then wash your hands.
o Stay at home and away from others if you are feeling ill. If you have health concerns, call HealthLinkBC at 8-1-1.
In Good Health,
The Rutland Physical Therapy Team
