Northern Ireland will enter a two week period of tougher Covid-19 lockdown measures from next Friday (November 27).

The measures were agreed by the executive on Thursday. Off-sales must stop at 20:00.

Non-essential retail will have to shut, and the hospitality sector will have to remain closed. Schools and childcare will stay open.

Close contact services can reopen today (Friday 20), but will have to close again on November 27.

No household gatherings of more than one household will be allowed, other than current bubbling arrangements, with exceptions for caring, maintenance and house moves.

Public parks and outdoor play areas will also be permitted to remain open.

The executive is set to develop more financial support packages in the next few days.
