Phased Re-opening for Cerebral Palsy Midlands
Posted on 17th May 2021 at 16:32
Plans for a phased re-opening
I hope you are all safe and well. Things seem to be improving with regards to Covid-19, but we must still remain vigilant and not get complacent. Please ensure you keep washing your hands and maintain social distancing. The virus is still with us so remain cautious.
Since January 2021, cases of COVID-19 have fallen significantly across the country, reducing the risk of catching the virus for everyone, including the most vulnerable. Birmingham City Council have advised that all of our citizens can return to our community day-centre in a planned phased return.
Currently we are offereing all of our citizens a one day placement every fortnight to make it fair for all. We have new procedures in place like temperature checks, hand sanitizing stations, social distancing and full PPE. We will be continuing our online presence for a while yet so that we can reach our wider community. And our welfare checks and outreach service will continue on until our service resumes.
We have made many adjustments and bought in new safe practices to make Cerebral Palsy Midlands the safest place for our citizens. We have done everything we can to reduce transmission of the Coronavirus. The robust lateral flow testing for our staff, citizens and community will ensure any person who enters our building will have had to produce evidence of a negative result prior to entry.

We will regularly review and assess our re-opening procedures and guidelines and adjust if necessary.
We also need to make you aware that, if the National Situation was to change or worsen again we may introduce new guidelines according to Birmingham City Council Adult Social Care Directorate and we will dutifully keep you informed.
How to stop COVID-19 spreading
There are things you can do to help reduce the risk of you and anyone you live with getting ill with COVID-19.
Wash your hands with soap and water often – do this for at least 20 seconds
Use hand sanitiser gel if soap and water are not available
Cover your mouth and nose with a tissue or your sleeve (not your hands) when you cough or sneeze
Put used tissues in the bin immediately and wash your hands afterwards
When mixing with people indoors, keep rooms well ventilated
