Update - 3 August 2020

COVID-19 is still present in the UK despite the easing of lockdown rules. To reduce the risk of our numbers rising again and to prevent the spread of outbreaks, the council still believes that our day care services need to remain closed.

There continue to be significant outbreaks in some parts of the West Midlands and smaller local outbreaks daily.

If we lose focus and think it is all over, we could end up taking a backward step in terms of lockdown easing, this would be extremely difficult for everyone.

The decision to keep day centres closed is not made lightly, and we recognise that carers and service users continue to be affected, however we believe that preventing the spread of the virus is important for the protection of our citizens.

We review this decision frequently and we are waiting on further guidance from Government and Public Health England to confirm that a phased reopening of day opportunities can be planned in a safe way.

We understand the challenges that many families continue to face with the closure of day care services especially where the adult has complex support needs, but we have to insist that the current guidelines continue to be followed as infections spread easily in closed spaces where people gather together.

As the day care service providers that support Birmingham citizens remain closed, they will continue to deliver an offer of outreach support which complies with government infection control and social distancing guidelines.
