New coronavirus restrictions for Birmingham
New coronavirus restrictions have been announced for Birmingham residents as a result of the government’s new three-tier system. These come into effect TOMORROW: Wednesday, 14 October.
The city has been placed in the ‘alert level 2’ due to infection rates above 100 per 100,000 people. This means households will not be able to meet indoors (except with support bubbles) – including indoor hospitality, leisure and retail. This is in addition to the national ‘rule of six’ and the local ban on meeting other households in private homes – though the rule of six will now apply to private gardens.
A walk-in Covid-19 testing site is currently being setup in Alfred Road car park in Sparkbrook.
St. Paul’s has welcomed two students from Germany who are with us for the next five months.
