Should be, You are not leaving the house

Is this structure imperative? When you have to use menj or menjél?

This is not grammatically imperative, but used as an order anyway, just like the English sentence. The actual imperative would be written as "Do not leave the house!" (note the omission of the 'you' here) and "Ne menj el a házból!" respectively.
