what you can and can’t do as hospitality and tourism reopen

Northern Ireland has seen a quick succession of reopenings in hospitality and tourism following the fast-tracking of legislature by ministers on April 15.

In the latest easing of restrictions, pubs and restaurants can now serve people indoors and indoor attractions including cinemas, museums and casinos can reopen.

Additionally, for the first time in over a year, no more than six people from two households can now gather within a private dwelling, as well as stay overnight. 

Non-essential travel to the rest of the UK is now permitted, with hotels and B&B’s able to open their doors. The ‘traffic light system’ has been introduced for foreign travel. 

Following the easing of restrictions on May 24, the First Minister, Arlene Foster said: “This is a good day, we’re very pleased to have reached this point in our journey coming out of Covid restrictions and of course we’re asking people to be sensible but also to enjoy the new-found freedoms that they have today”.

The Deputy First Minster, Michelle O’Neill added: “It’s a really positive day all round, for individuals able to meet inside, for the economy to see the doors opening up again, our gyms, to be able to come back to the cinema.”

Close contact services such as hairdressers were have been allowed to serve customers since April 23, whilst pubs, restaurants and cafes opened their doors after four months in lockdown, along with non-essential retail on April 30.

Just 3 days later, gyms and swimming pools also reopened. Additionally, 15 people from no more than 3 households are also allowed to meet in domestic gardens as of May 3.
