With increased community transmission of the virus, rambling clubs must cease their programme for the next two weeks. This will be subject to guidance and review from the Northern Ireland Executive.

The external gatherings up to 15 are no longer permitted. Persons from the same household or bubble may meet outdoors for personal exercise with no unnecessary travel, or mixing with other households etc.

You are also recommended to download and activate the Stop COVID NI app on your smartphone.

We all have a social responsibility to ensure the transmission of Covid-19 is minimised. The observance of these guidelines, in addition to normal good practice, will ensure walkers play their part.

Wash hands, cover face, make space
