Stop press: changes to Christmas arrangements for Northern Ireland

After an extraordinary meeting of the Executive yesterday (Sunday) evening, it was decided to limit the arrangements for people to come together over Christmas. A statement from the Executive says that “Christmas bubbling will now be reduced to one day only on a date between 23 and 27 December, to ensure flexibility for those working on Christmas Day to choose an alternative day that suits best.”


“The Executive is urging everyone to travel only if it is absolutely necessary. Travel is not permitted in or out of Tier 4 areas in England. Restrictions apply in other tier areas.  Everyone should comply with all travel restrictions in place for each region and check the guidance at both the point of departure and destination. The Executive also discussed the issue of restricting travel and Ministers agreed to consider this further when they next meet.”
