Social distancing to end in shops & theatres in North

 

Stormont ministers have agreed to end social distancing rules for shops, theatres and a number of indoor settings in Northern Ireland.

The measure will take effect from 6pm on Thursday.

Businesses are being asked to put in place additional mitigation measures, such proof of vaccination and proof of a negative lateral flow rapid test.

Ending the rules for hospitality will be considered at a meeting of the executive next week, according to First Minister Paul Givan.
