Social distancing restrictions for shops, theatres and other indoor settings in Northern Ireland will come to an end at 6 pm on September 30, 2021.
The 1-meter social distancing rule is still in place in hospitality settings such as restaurants, cafes, and pubs, but is set to be reviewed on October 7.
Face coverings are still mandatory on public transport, in shops, and in hospitality settings when not seated, unless they are exempt.
Any decision to further remove the restrictions in Northern Ireland will have to be agreed upon by the five parties in the Stormont executive. Currently, health officials in Northern Ireland are thought to be in favour of keeping the restrictions on face-covering in place.
