Northern Ireland has reduced its social distancing rule from 2m to 1m from today.
The measure has been widely welcomed in the hospitality sector, where representatives said jobs and businesses were at risk if the 2m rule remained.
People are being told they should keep two metres distance where possible, but 1m is allowed with restrictions.
Northern Ireland’s hotels, pubs, restaurants and cafes will reopen on 3rd July.
Churches across the region are reopening to the public today for services. Stormont ministers are also expected to make a decision on making masks mandatory on public transport today.

The latest update from the Department of Health brings the death toll in NI to 551.
Six new cases of the virus were also reported today. There have now been 5,757 cases of Covid-19 in Northern Ireland since the outbreak began.
