In light of the rapid and ongoing escalation of the COVID19 pandemic, MASH encourages all its members to stay at home as well as to inform their clients to do the same. All therapy and assessment sessions are best postponed after the Movement Control Order (MCO) is complete. Consider engaging your clients in telepractise or offer homework packs for your clients in order that they feel supported.
For clinicians who must go into work such as those working in hospitals, we strongly urge you to remain strictly mindful of keeping CV19 at bay through rigorous hand washing and/hand sanitizing, maintaining social distancing (the 1 meter rule) and ensuring tools used in therapy are disinfected after each session. (Please download the MASH COVID19 Recommendations for more details of clinicians preparing to start services again after MCO.)
Please communicate the seriousness of this matter to your clients and families.
