Minister for Health Stephen Donnelly said:
“Certainly the view would be that we would be open this calendar year. What we’d like is the lifting of all restrictions as soon as possible.
“We may get public health advice to keep some restrictions for some time – should we wear masks? Should we continue to wash our hands and do all of that? The public health advice will be the basics we want to keep doing.
“What we want to do is provide real certainty. It’s been a brutal year and a half, most of society and the economy is open. We are aware there are some who aren’t and have suffered hugely and we want to open them as quickly as possible and when they do open, stay open and give them clarity as to when that can happen.”
