Families in Birmingham, Sandwell and Solihull will be banned from seeing each other from Tuesday.
The order from the Department of Health was announced at a press conference by the West Midlands Coalition.
COVID-19 Infections are on the rise in Birmingham – and there are concerns about a growing number of cases nationally.
According to NHS Digital data, Birmingham showed 892 cases out of a period of 78,000 cases per 100,000 at the last seven-day rate on September 6 – the highest since the peak of April.
For the previous seven-day period, this rate was over 30.
Birmingham City Council leader Ian Ward said the percentage increase in reported coronavirus cases included “a white man.”
“There is an increase in hospital admissions and cases in care homes with Covid-19,” he added.
Mr Ward added: “This spread is primarily seen through social interaction, especially in private household gatherings and in the workplace where social-distance is not observed.”
He continued: “The location of the city has now become an area of intervention, in line with places like Greater Manchester.”
Mr Ward further confirmed that from Tuesday the people of Birmingham will not be able to mix in any home or private garden except for a support bubble.
He continued: “This restriction applies to both inside and outside the city limits.
“If you live on the outskirts of the city, you can’t mix with any other family outside the city limits.
“If you live in a damaged area, to help prevent the spread of COVID-19, you must not host people who do not live in your home or garden, unless they are in your support bubble.
“You must not live in their home or garden, inside or outside the affected area, in your home or garden unless your support bubbles.”
1.14 million cities have already moved to the National Public Health England (PHE) watchlist, which identifies areas of concern to local authorities by the rate of infection.
Over the past month, Birmingham has been considered a region in need of “increased support”, with over 30 days of infection recorded per 100,000 people.
Of particular concern to health chiefs is the daily increase in the rate of infection.
In response, Birmingham City Council agreed with the government – including a crackdown on businesses violating COVD-19 restrictions.
The city’s public health director. Justin Verney said the increase was “initially involved in private housing” at the end of August and on bank holiday weekends.
He added that the increase in tests has also yielded more positive results.
Licensed premises, such as pubs and bars, and restaurants driven by communication search rules and social distance are also thought to be part of the problem behind the rising rates.
The mayor added that with the largest increase in the number of people under the age of 40, young people had to “take responsibility.”
Current positive infections have left Birmingham on the national table with the highest number of infection rates in the national population, leaving Bolton and Sunderland behind.
According to data from NHS Digital, Bolton’s seven-day rate currently stands at 143 cases per 100,000 and Sunderland at 84.
Solihull’s latest infection rate for the week ended Sept. 8 stood at 62.8.
Another neighboring borough, Sandwell, has been battling high rates for weeks.
Elsewhere, Leeds, which ranks 13th in the infection rate table for 60 cases per 100,000, May take more drastic measures.
A total of 474 new cases were recorded in the city during the week.
Data from the previous seven days showed that other cities, including Salford, Manchester and Liverpool, recorded sharp growth in their weekly rates.
Official figures show that the number of cases in Birmingham has risen as the rate of Kevid-19 infection has risen sharply.
And the latest guess for that Between 1.0 and 1.2 across the UK, according to the Scientific Advisory Group for Emergencies (SAG).
The number represents the average number of people who become infected with each coronavirus.
