The Stormont executive has agreed that lockdown restrictions in Northern Ireland will be extended until 1 April.

First Minister Arlene Foster and Finance Minister Conor Murphy are set to provide further information at a press conference later today.

It is believed that children in primary 1 to primary 3 (ages 4 – 7) will go back to schools on 8 March in Northern Ireland.

Health officials have said they want to avoid a possible rise in cases around St Patrick’s Day, 17 March.

While the rate of infection continues to fall, the numbers remain higher than when restriction were initially eased after the first lockdown.

Another full review will be conducted on the 18th March.
