Misleading information about the process for suspected tests
Schools are aware of rumours that have been circulating online about how suspected cases of COVID in pupils will be dealt with when schools return to school this week.
These messages are intended to mislead and in no way reflect how Birmingham schools will respond to children with symptoms. Dr Justin Varney, Director of Public Health, confirmed this in videos that the council has posted to twitter (https://twitter.com/BhamCityCouncil/status/1300831895249395715) and facebook (https://www.facebook.com/watch/?v=799020854258788).
