COVID-19

COVID-19 has rapidly spread all across European Countries and has disrupted our usual routines and line of work. We are aware of many resources that are already available to help and assist Occupational Therapists and the general public. A number of studies are also underway which will definitely present the current scenario and our reaction to it in the coming months. Thus, we will be using this page to collect all the available resources and make them easily accessible to you. If you’d like us to feature any other resource available, please let us know on info@coteceurope.eu
