What about face coverings?
Although mandatory use of face coverings in England ended on 19 July, that does not apply in Northern Ireland.
Ministers have discussed the issue in recent days but they are moving more cautiously with lifting that rule. pg
They did put in place an indicative date of 26 July, which would see face coverings no longer compulsory in places of worship or for students in school classrooms in the new term - but that has yet to be signed off by ministers.

Ministers are due to review the wearing face coverings in places of worship at next Thursday's executive meeting.
Looking at ending the mandatory use of face coverings more widely is unlikely to be discussed by ministers until a meeting on 12 August.
Masks have been legally required in Northern Ireland on public transport, in shops and in a range of other settings since last summer, with a limited number of exemptions.
