Birmingham Covid Dashboard 31 October – 6 November

The most recent Birmingham COVID dashboard for 31 October-6 November circulated via the Community Champion network can be read here.
In Birmingham, the virus is spreading in households. We are recommended to look at this website here  to see how we can all reduce spread at home.

Have you had a test for Covid-19?

Everyone who has can help Birmingham City Council and Public Health England by completing the COVID-19 Testing Survey.
“This survey is being carried out on behalf of the Councils in the West Midlands to understand more about people’s views on COVID-19 testing and their experience of the testing system.
The learning from the survey will help us to make sure that services are being delivered to all parts of our communities and ensure that everyone who needs a test is able to access one. You can complete the survey via this link. ”


Shop Local – Shop Moseley!

A message from Moseley Community Development Trust – please help spread the word:

“We’re developing an online local business directory which we hope will make it simpler for people to Shop Local this Christmas, whilst also highlighting some of the amazing businesses and makers we have here. The directory will be a place that local residents use to get inspiration for Christmas gifts – be that local art, jewellery, food or gift vouchers. We’d love to include as many local businesses as possible in the directory and are aiming to have this live in the next two weeks.

If you’d like to be featured send an email to and we’ll let you know what information we need. This is entirely free and just a small way we’re trying to support local businesses this Christmas.”
