Covid-19 Latest Guidance

Covid-19 Roadmap: Step 2

From 12 April 2021

  • Shops are expected to reopen, along with pubs and restaurants (for outdoor dining only).
  • Other businesses including hairdressers, libraries and community centres, zoos, and theme parks will reopen. 
  • Indoor leisure including gyms (for individual use only) will reopen.
  • You must continue not to mix with other households indoors.
  • Weddings, wakes and reception of up to 15 people permitted.

As we move through each of these steps, it is important that we all remember COVID-19 is still a part of our lives so we must:

  • Continue  to follow the principles of ‘hands, face, space and ventilation’
  • Follow the COVID-secure measures that remain in place at different stages 
  • Get tested when needed – if you cannot work from home, have someone in your household attending or working in education or have COVID-19 symptoms
  • Get vaccinated when offered
