With the Easter Bank Holiday approaching, the Department of Health is urging people all over the country to protect the vulnerable by continuing to follow public health advice.
Anyone with symptoms is asked not to attend any social events, work, school or college if they have symptoms.
Anyone diagnosed with COVID-19 should self-isolate for seven days from the day their symptoms started or if they have no symptoms, from the day they first tested positive.
People are still advised to wear masks on public transport and in healthcare settings.
Meanwhile, people should continue to practise good hand and respiratory hygiene by sanitising hands regularly and coughing/sneezing into their elbow.
People are still encouraged to maintain physical distancing where possible.
The government is also reminding the public that many people who tested positive over Easter are now eligible for their booster.
Anyone over the age of 12, can book a booster here.
