Northern Ireland Parties Reach Deal To Extend COVID-19 Restrictions



Northern Ireland’s power-sharing government on Thursday agreed to extend COVID-19 restrictions for between one and two weeks, falling short of stricter measures demanded by Irish nationalist parties.

owners, but the rival Ulster Unionists and Irish nationalist parties Sinn Fein and the SDLP said high infection rates meant restrictions should be maintained.

Under a compromise between the DUP, the UUP and the non-sectarian Alliance party, the five-party power-sharing executive agreed the reopening of cafes and close-contact services like hairdressers will be delayed by a week and the reopening of bars and restaurants serving alcohol will be delayed by two weeks.

Sinn Fein voted against the measures, while the SDLP abstained.

“The advice was that we needed a further two-week restriction (on cafes and close-contact services) and that’s what we would have wanted to see,” Sinn Fein’s Northern Ireland leader Michelle O’Neill told UTV television.

Neighbouring Ireland closed all bars, cafes and non-essential retail and banned non-essential travel of more than 5 kilometres from Oct. 21 until Dec. 1.

Northern Ireland has reported 825 deaths within 28 days of a positive COVID-19 test, including 15 reported on Thursday.

It has had just over 200 cases per 100,000 people over the past seven days, around three times the rate in the rest of Ireland, which has fallen sharply since strict measures were introduced.
