  • An increase in the numbers that can meet outdoors for social/recreational purposes, including in private gardens – maximum of 3 households or 6 people.
  • Reopening of personal services by appointment.

With 1.5 million vaccine doses now administered we have close to 30% of the population have had at least one dose of the vaccine.

Hope is returning!
