Restrictions

The Executive have agreed on a package of additional restrictions given the high levels of Covid-19 transmission in the community.

​​Amongst the additional restrictions agreed are:​​​​​​​

  • Private garden gatherings - maximum of six people from one household or support bubble only, with children under 12 counting towards the permitted total.
     
  • Gatherings reduced to maximum of six people from two households. Children under 12 are now counted towards the permitted total.
     
  • Outdoor exercise permitted with one person from another household - to allow, for example, those living alone to go for a walk with a friend.​​​​​​​

These restrictions, which will be put into regulations, will be introduced from midnight on Thursday 7 January but the Executive has asked the public to act as if they are already in place.

These restrictions will be in place until February 6 and will be reviewed on January 21.
