As people group around the planet react to the quickly advancing circumstance around a pandemic, therapists across the broadness of the field are giving basic direction and support. We got confused at some point not knowing what will happen next. Our workplace was closed, and the government told us to work from home if necessary, school were also closed.

Another requirement is the food handling certificate issued from the ministry of health. It is a must to have this certificate which shows that one is free from diseases and can handle food.
