what you can and can’t do as the rules start easing

Although ministers have not made travel outside of the country illegal, they have issued guidance advising against non-essential travel between Northern Ireland and both Great Britain and the Irish Republic.

These measures form part of the Executive’s Pathway Out Of Restrictions blueprint, which was signed on March 2. 

It includes five steps along nine pathways – retail; hospitality; education and young people; work; culture, heritage and entertainment; sports and leisure; travel and tourism; worship and ceremonies; and home and community.

The five stages of restriction begin with lockdown then extend to cautious first steps, gradual easing, further easing, and preparing for the future.

The Executive will review the progress of the pathway every four weeks, with the next review on May 13.

How is the vaccine roll-out progressing in Northern Ireland?

As of May 13, 989,569 people have received their first dose of the vaccine, and 526,191 second doses have also been administered in Northern Ireland.

It comes as people aged 30 to 34 are now able to access a Covid-19 vaccine in Northern Ireland as of April 30.

Health Minister Robin Swann said there is some limited availability for people in that age cohort.

The appointments are mainly available at the mass vaccination centre in Belfast’s SSE Arena, whilst some appointments may also become available in community pharmacies.

Mr Swann said: “It is worth remembering the progress that our vaccination programme has made in a relatively short period of time.

“In less than five months we have vaccinated almost one million people, and thousands of our citizens have been able to receive the vaccine well ahead of schedule.

“I know that we all long for a sustainable return to more normal times and vaccination offers the best hope for this.

“Uptake is very encouraging, and I’m pleased that we are moving so quickly through the cohorts.

“We have a limited number of slots that we can now offer to those aged 30 to 34, so, if you’re eligible, I would urge you to step forward and take the opportunity to get the jab.”
