Introduction

It is critical that rehabilitation continues in people with specific rehabilitation needs, even during a pandemic. The COVID-19 pandemic has caused countries to implement strict infection control measures such as social distancing and restricting people’s regular movement. A lack of access to rehabilitation could have serious implications on the health outcomes of people with specific ongoing rehabilitation needs. Physiotherapists need to make difficult decisions relating to the continuation of rehabilitation services during the COVID-19 outbreak. Changes in rehabilitation services due to pandemic constraints will have significant implications for today and the future.
