On 26th March 2020, the UK Government published legislation setting out the statutory basis requiring the closure of businesses selling food or drink for consumption on the premises, and businesses listed in the regulation. The Regulation also sets out the limitations on the movement of individuals.

Exempt businesses and premises are identified within the regulation, at Schedule 2, Part 3 of the regulation. At paragraph 37 of Part 3 the following businesses are identified as not required to close: Dental services, opticians, audiology services, chiropody, chiropractors, osteopaths and other medical or health services, including services relating to mental health. As such, chiropractors are not required to close their business/premises at this time.

In response to the current crisis and in an effort to allow chiropractors to safely serve their communities at this time, the SCA has prepared stringent guidelines for their members to follow if they decide to stay open. It is expected that member chiropractors will adhere to regulatory board guidelines and current government guidance.
