The Birmingham COVID Dashboard of information for 7-13 November can be read here.
Our Public Health team say that much of the spread of the virus in Birmingham is taking place in households. They ask us all to spread the message that if one person tests positive the whole family must isolate, with the reminder (here) about how to claim financial assistance during isolation; and also the FAQ about support payments here.
The team is concerned about families who do not respond to the messages sent out by schools. Anyone who is concerned about particular situations or families can use the form on West Midlands Police website to make a report.
The Public Health team also encourage people to make use of the sources of help available for maintaining good mental health.
