Mandatory stay-at-home lockdown in effect for the entire country


A two week stay-at-home lockdown is in effect across the country. However, there are certain exceptions to essential services.

This decision, which came into effect at midnight, has been made to fight against Covid-19.

Shielding is also being introduced for anyone over 70.

Anyone who isn’t shielding can leave their home within a 2km limit.

This limit can be exceeded for food shopping.
