But Coun Mike Bird said: “It is always likely. We have a lot of people who live in Walsall and travel to Birmingham, Sandwell, Dudley or wherever to work. “So there’s always the risk of them bringing back the virus into the town, which then spreads. “However, at this point in time I am not aware that there are any plans to do that. But every day is different.” Much of the Black Country is already included in “local lockdown” restrictio­ns banning people from allowing anyone from a different household into their home or garden, or visiting other people in their home or garden. A household means the people you live with, so even close relatives, are barred from visiting if they live in a different property. The local rules come on top of the national rules requring people to wear facemasks and the “rule of six”, which bars social gatherings of more than six people. There is speculatio­n that Walsall could be added to the local lockdown because it has seen an increase in new cases over the last seven days. The rolling rate across the borough has risen to 62 cases per 100,000 people, a rise from 38.2 last week. These figures are higher than the infection rate in Wolverhamp­ton, which is 59.6 per 100,000 people. Health Secretary Matt Hancock and the Government’s scientific advisers meet every Thursday to discuss the situation nationally and in hotspots. Any new local lockdown rules are usually announced on Fridays.
