COVID restrictions extended for one week in Northern Ireland while housing market remains open

On 12 November 2020, the Northern Ireland Executive voted to extend the ‘circuit-breaker’ for one more week, ensuring that tighter restrictions will be in place across the country until 20 November 2020.

The partial re-opening on 20 November will see bars and cafes opening along with some close contact services, like hairdressing and driving lessons, all while following health and safety restrictions.

Housing market to stay open

During the circuit-breaker the housing market in Northern Ireland remained open and there is no change to that during the extension. As always it is important that all safety guidelines are followed strictly to stay safe and for the market to remain open. Read the Government guidance.
