Covid update - the removal of omicron restrictions
As you will be aware the First Minister gave her regular update today and announced some changes to the Covid restrictions in the light of the current improvements in case figures.
From Monday 24th January all the additional omicron measures – 1m distancing at social events, table service when alcohol is being sold, the closure of night clubs, and the ban on adult indoor non-professional contact sports – will be lifted. We can thereafter return to the situation as it was before the advent of omicron.
The restrictions we had before omicron, such as face coverings, good ventilation, sanitising, and the encouragement to keep using track and trace, remain in force and we should still be applying them in our parishes, both for worship and social activities.
With best wishes
Canon Paul Gargaro
