Leeds set to face new restrictions from midnight in the fight against Covid-19, including a ban on mixing households

City Council leader Judith Blake said she expected Leeds to become a ‘zone of intervention’ meaning ‘more restrictions at home, like those already in place in three of the West Yorkshire districts of Bradford, Kirklees and Calderdale « 

The addition of Leeds’ 793,000 residents would bring the number of people living under local restrictions to over 162 million across the UK

Tom Riordan, Managing Director of Leeds City Council, said: « What we’re trying to do is give a simple message – you shouldn’t really mix with other households »

He added: « I think we know from the experience of Leicester, Greater Manchester and West Yorkshire that when these restrictions are introduced they don’t tend to be lifted after a week or two »

The city has seen 22 of its schools hit by coronavirus outbreaks since children returned to their classrooms in early September

There were 829 new cases of coronavirus recorded in Leeds in the week to September 21

This represents a jump of 222 from the previous week and means the city has an infection rate of 1045

If Leeds follows other parts of Yorkshire like Bradford, its people will soon no longer be able to meet people outside of their supportive bubbles in private homes or gardens

They will also not be allowed to visit the homes of people outside the city.They are «  strongly advised  » not to socialize with people they do not live with in public
