In the light of the uncertainty we all face in our daily lives with the outbreak of COVID-19 (Coronavirus), we wanted to inform you of the steps we at Capital Clinic Physiotherapy are taking to ensure your health and safety and that we are prepared for all scenarios. Our absolute number one priority is the safety of our team and you, our patients.

We always practice rigorous infection control procedures but want to highlight some areas that will assist with your safety, some of these already existed and some have been added

  • Benches/hard surfaces are being cleaned and disinfected multiple times daily
  • Any linen is single use only and all beds are cleaned between consultations
  • Hand sanitizer is available for your use at the front desk, in every treatment room and in the gym
  • Multiple basins are available for you to wash your hands
  • Any mats used as part of Pilates or gym programs are thoroughly cleaned between uses
  • Yoga blocks, foam rollers and other equipment is cleaned after each use
  • For Pilates clients we will be providing you with your own theraband for use throughout the term
  • Staff will maintain rigorous hand hygiene procedures
  • We will minimise any contact through the transactions at front desk

It is critical that we work together to help stop (or at least slow) the spread of COVID-19 and decrease the burden on our health system. With that in mind here are some things that you can do to assist us:

  • Please do not attend your appointment if you are meant to be undertaking self-isolation after returning from overseas in the last 14 days
  • Please do not attend your appointment if you are exhibiting any of the following symptoms:
    • Fever
    • Cough
    • Sore throat
    • Shortness of breath
  • Please make use of the sanitizer or wash basins provided before and after your appointment
  • Pilates clients please bring your own clean towel to classes as well as the theraband we supply with you
  • Clients are most welcome to bring their own pilates/yoga mats for exercise

We are keeping up to date of any changes via the ACT and National health websites. We will inform you in the future of any changes that are relevant to your experience at Capital Clinic Physiotherapy
