Northern Ireland to close restaurants in strictest UK lockdown - document

BELFAST, Oct 14 (Reuters) - Northern Ireland is to impose the strictest COVID-19 restrictions seen in the United Kingdom since early summer, closing schools for two weeks and shuttering restaurants for four, the regional executive said in a letter seen by Reuters.

The closure will affect the entire hospitality sector, with the exception of takeaway and delivery services, and double the length of the annual October school break from one week to two, according to the letter sent to deputies in the regional parliament on Wednesday.
