Leicestershire will be split up into different levels of restrictions under the new three-tier system that comes into effect on Wednesday.
While the rest of the county will be subject to tier one measures, Oadby and Wigston and Leicester city will be in tier two.
The government confirmed areas already subject to tighter restrictions, like Oadby and Wigston, will "automatically" become tier two areas.
A spokesperson for the Oadby and Wigston Borough Council said: "The council has received confirmation... that the borough is in Tier 2 (High) of the government's three-tiered system.
"As it stands, the borough's current lockdown measures will remain the same.
"One thing that is now allowed is to meet family and friends in each other's gardens, as well as beer gardens (rule of 6 applies). But going into someone else's house is still not allowed.
"Final regulations will be shared as soon as they are published."
