Following an increase in coronavirus (COVID-19) cases, additional restrictions have been introduced for people living in Northern Ireland. These are aimed at limiting the chances for the virus to spread between households.

You should not allow:

  • people you do not live with into your home, except for  for bubbling with one other household and certain other exemptions.
  • more than six people to gather in your garden (not including children aged 12 or under), from no more than two households. 

Everyone can also help stop COVID-19 spreading by:

  • Avoiding touching your face and washing your hands as soon as you get home.
  • If you go outside stay 2 metres (6ft) away from other people.
  • Wearing a face mask in enclosed spaces where social distancing is not possible.

Remember, you can spread the virus even if you don't have symptoms.
