15 September 2020
 

The #BirminghamLockdown comes into force today. But how is it affecting the local community? We turn to Twitter for the lowdown. 

 

Earlier this month, the #KeepBrumSafe campaign was launched to help tackle rising coronavirus cases in the city…

 

 

With billboards popping up around the city…

 

 

Some have praised the ’No Bull’ approach…

 

 

And others have appealed to fellow residents to stick to the rules…

 

 

The local police also encouraged their followers to protect those around them…

 

 

And the Retail BID team have showed their support whilst on duty…

 

 

Despite the campaign, a local lockdown was deemed necessary with the announcement made on 11 September 2020…

 

 

Leaving some Twitter users confused…

 

 

Thankfully Birmingham City Council has stepped in to add some clarity to the new rules, with a new FAQs page…

 

 

Although many are still questioning the logic of the new guidelines…

 

 

And childcare is now proving complex for working families…

 

 

What do you think to the new rules?
