The Executive has today decided to introduce a series of localised restrictions to stem the increase in COVID-19 cases and keep people safe.

The areas covered are:

  • Belfast City Council area
  • Postcode area BT28
  • Postcode area BT29
  • The town of Ballymena and postcode area BT43

The restrictions are:

  • Restrictions on mixing of households in private dwellings
  • No trips / journeys outside your travel area.
  • Visits to Care homes and hospitals in these areas will be restricted

Anyone living in the areas is asked to follow the restrictions with immediate effect.

The localised restrictions will be in place for a minimum of two weeks, after which they will be reviewed.

Postcode areas may be added and removed from the local restrictions as patterns of infection change and further interventions and restrictions can be introduced as necessary.
