Publicans and restaurateurs in Northern Ireland are gearing up to reopen their doors today in a further relaxation of Covid-19 restrictions.
Under Stormont’s phased reopening plan, outdoor hospitality and all non-essential retail are due to resume later today after four months of closure.
Licensed and unlicensed premises can serve customers in outdoors settings in groups of six from no more than two households.
It means publicans and restauranteurs who have outdoor space can resume operating.
Curfews on takeaways and off-licences have been removed.
