Ministers in Northern Ireland have agreed a series of new measures aimed at bolstering adherence to Covid rules. MLAs met this morning to resume discussions on a range of proposals recommended by Health Minister Robin Swann.

Some revisions to Mr Swann's original recommendations have been made. People will be urged to work from home where possible and the Executive has tasked its Covid taskforce to examine issues around enforcement of mask wearing.

It will also look at the potential of setting up a "scores-on-the-doors" type system to rate businesses on their compliance with rules and mitigations. Latest coronavirus stories
