Northern Ireland and Wales to bring in tough Omicron restrictions
The Guardian says Wales and Northern Ireland have announced stringent restrictions that will come into force from Boxing Day, including the return of the rule of six for hospitality venues, in an effort to curb the spread of the Omicron variant.
The first minister of Wales, Mark Drakeford, accused Boris Johnson of being in a “state of paralysis,” over Omicron as he set out a package of strict measures he said would put his country at “alert level two”.
These include reintroducing the 2-metre social distancing rule in pubs, cinemas and theatres, banning all large events and insisting on table service only in hospitality venues.
