Update 2021-05-24: On Monday (24 May), Northern Ireland became the last part of the United Kingdom to relax its measures to combat the COVID-19 pandemic. According to media reports, pubs, restaurants, and cafés are allowed to receive guests indoors again. Hotels and museums are also allowed to reopen. Up to 6 people can meet indoors, and up to 15 people can do so outdoors on private property. Outdoor events are limited to 500 guests. Social distance rules remain in force (unlike in the rest of the country), which means that hugs and kisses of greeting are still prohibited.
