With the exception of takeaways, all pubs and restaurants will be required to close for four weeks.

The measures differ to the full-scale lockdown imposed during the first wave of the coronavirus pandemic.

Churches will also remain open and it is understood a 25-person limit will be placed on funerals and weddings, but wedding receptions are prohibited.

THERE HAVE BEEN 1,217 new cases of Covid-19 confirmed in Northern Ireland in the past 24 hours, its Department of Health has said.

Meanwhile, no overnight stays in a private home will be allowed unless in a bubble; close contact services such as hairdressers and beauticians are not permitted to open, apart from those relating to the continuation of essential health interventions and therapeutics.

People have been advised to work from home unless unable to do so and have also been urged not to take unnecessary journeys.

Mass events involving more than 15 people (except for allowed outdoor sporting events where the relevant number for that will continue to apply) will be banned.

Schools will close in Northern Ireland this Friday, October 16.

First Minister Arlene Foster announced the restrictions at a special sitting of the Assembly this morning.

And Welsh First Minister Mark Drakeford told Times Radio he was "very actively" considering a "short, sharp intervention" in the country and the Welsh government was "working hard at that detail". "We don't want to see a financial gesture, but a significant payment made to all those in the sector that have had their means of making a living stripped away from them for the greater good". Second, we believe this is a point where any one of us can take stock and get back to the social distancing news.

These infections are among 6,286 new cases in the last seven days, bringing the total to 21,898.

There are now 164 patients in hospitals with Covid-19, including 24 in intensive care.
