The government confirmed that Warrington will hit the highest level of coronavirus restrictions from 12:01 a.m. on Tuesday.
The Tier 3 rules mean pubs and bars will be closed unless they can be run as a restaurant, and people are largely prohibited from mingling with anyone outside their household or support bubble.
Betting shops, adult gaming centers, casinos and soft play centers will also be closed.
A financial assistance package of £ 1.68 million will be given to the Council to help trace and enforce contacts.
You will also receive £ 4.2 million in corporate support from the government.
Health Secretary Matt Hancock said: “Infection rates are rising in Warrington and we have agreed with local leaders that it is time to take action.
“I know these new measures will mean that the people of Warrington will have to make sacrifices.
“And I would like to express my thanks to each and every one of them for realizing the gravity of the situation and for sticking to the rules.
“We have agreed on a support package to help businesses while increasing efforts to fight the virus locally, and we will not hesitate to take similar action in any area of the country if infection rates continue to rise.
“Please remember – now is the time for all of us to work together to bring this virus under control.”
Tier 2 rules – including Birmingham and parts of the West Midlands including Coventry, Sandwell and Solihull – mean indoor mixing between households is prohibited – including eating places like pubs, bars and restaurants.
