The Executive has signalled its intention to make a number of changes to the Coronavirus Regulations in the weeks ahead but has stressed that those would be conditional on the course of the epidemic.

Garden centres can open under the current regulations and the intention is to ease the restrictions in other retail settings which involve the use of outdoor space.

If the R number (the current COVID-19 transmission rate) remains at or below its current level of 0.9 in Northern Ireland, then a number of relaxations will be introduced for additional retail businesses.
