Northern Ireland to lift remaining Covid restrictions
All remaining legal Covid-19 restrictions will be lifted in Northern Ireland from today.
Yesterday the Health Minister, Robin Swann, announced rules, including wearing face masks in public places, are being replaced by guidance.
It means Covid passes are also no longer required in nightclubs, but rules on testing and isolating remain.
General manager of Rosie Joe’s bar and nightclub in Derry, Declan Jordan, says it’s great news.
“Our minds are at ease know that we’re not always looking over our shoulder to be honest, that we’re making sure that we’re doing everything right.
“At one stage you know the restrictions were changing probably once a week.
“Now we don’t have to worry about that. We can go about planning for going into the summer.
“We can finally have clarification that we can do that as a business and that is very much welcome.”
