TEMPORARY LOCKDOWN OF COBURG OSTEOPATHY

TEMPORARY ISOLATION LOCK DOWN FOR VICTORIAN BUSINESSES

WE ARE STILL HERE FOR YOU EVEN IF WE ARE NOT OPEN 

We are saddened to report that Tuesday the 24thMarchwill be our final day of clinic at Coburg Osteopathy & Health Services, before this inevitable temporary lockdown.  Even though it has been recommended by Federal and State governments to help reduce spread of this life threatening virus, it has been a difficult decision to accept for all members of our team.  It will be the first time we have closed our doors in 20 years.  

We are hopeful that if everyone in our community cooperates to isolate, we will see a decline in the cases reported.  This is a time for us each to do our bit, to reflect and remember to never take our health for granted, look after ourselves and our loved ones.

We believe that it is our responsibility as health practitioners to assist with the effort to slow the pandemic and keep the vulnerable members of our community safe. We are unsure how long this closure will be but we are assuming it will be between 2-4 weeks.  If you require a last minute appointment today or tomorrow, we will endeavor to accommodate you the best we can.

If you have an existing appointment, you will have received an sms message from us, asking if you would like to keep your appointment and change it to an online video/phone appointment, or choose to cancel it.

NOT ALL DOOM AND GLOOM….

It is essential we look after our mental health as well as our physical health as we start to lockdown and self isolate. For those of you missing out on our regular weekly classes of Yoga, Pilates, Stretching or Strength and Mobility, we are in the process of working out the best way to bring you together using a platform virtually.  So we can all get together in our lounge rooms and go through a routine to keep you moving well. Everyone else in your household is welcome to join, we will promote it via our Facebook and Instagram pages.   If you would like to get some blocks, straps, therabands or stretch bands, we can send them out or feel free to pick them up from the clinic either today or tomorrow.  We will be in touch as soon as we have this sorted.
