The Health Minister says he’s no problem with people queuing outside shops once it’s done safely.

Lines have formed outside shops around the country as they reopen as we exit Level 5 Covid 19 restrictions.

The new public health advice is to wear face masks outside in crowded streets.

Stephen Donnelly says there's "no problem" with people heading to the shops.

"It's an exciting day for some people, for others there's just things they need to get."

He asked people to "mind each other, keep each other safe and keep your distance."

While hops, gyms, and hairdressers have all reopened, restaurants must wait un Friday to get back to business.

Under Level 3 guidelines just six people may sit at a table together, which Minister Donnelly hopes people treat with "common sense".

He says while attending eating is out is fine "don't do it again a different six people the following night and so on."

Minister Donnelly said people need to meet up after a "tough year" but pleaded with the public to remain responsible.

"Please, please, please do what the public health doctors are saying - just limit your contacts, that's the most important thing."
