First Minister Arlene Foster speaking earlier this week.

Further relaxations to the COVID-19 restrictions have been announced to take effect from 8th June providing the R-Value in Northern Ireland remains below 1.

First Minister Arlene Foster announced yesterday that if the conditions remain then commencing on 8th June:

💍 Small outdoor weddings can take place, with a maximum of 10 people.

🐕 People will be able to look after pets & non-farm animals, allowing dog grooming & horse trainings.

⛹️‍♂️ Outdoor sports courts can reopen.

🏨 Hotels can take advance bookings 'at risk'.

🚗 Outdoor retail, such as car sales can re-open. Also permitted would be stores with lower-frequency customer visits that are accessed directly from the street or retail park. This would include furniture, electrical and mobile phone shops.

Today, Economy Minister Diane Dodds also published her outline plan for economic recovery.

‘Charting a course for the economy: our first steps’, which has been approved by the Executive, is the first in a series of publications from the Department for the Economy looking at how to move forward from the economic damage caused by the Covid-19 pandemic.
