Coronavirus pandemic update (Number 29)
As you know new restrictions to reduce the transmission of COVID-19 within the community will come into force in NI at on 27 November 2020. The government have advised that “the single most important action we can all take to fight coronavirus, to save lives, and to help our Health and Social Care system cope with current pressures is to stay at home”. Some of the restrictions are in law through regulations, while others are in guidance. Everyone is legally required to comply with the regulations.
