Although an official announcement has not been made, experts believe Wolverhampton will be put into local lockdown next week.
Wolverhampton South West Conservative MP Stuart Anderson, said: “As a city, we have come together to put in place the best plan for Wolverhampton to help control the virus.
“At the moment the numbers are sky-rocketing, and we are doing everything we can to keep the schools open and to help our businesses to operate.
“People need to understand that if these new measures don’t work, then we will end up with restrictions like they are having in the North East, and possibly even returning to how we were earlier in the year.
“It will be devastating for the city if we are shut down again. Nobody wants to be in that position, but that is where we will be if we take no action now.”
Wolverhampton will likely face the same lockdown restrictions as Sandwell, Birmingham and Solihull.
That means people will be banned from meeting others who are not part of their household or support bubble, in homes or gardens.
