Local businesses react to new Northern Ireland lockdown measures

Grand Central hotel manager Stephen Meldrum, St John the Baptist primary school principal Chris Donnelly, Hospitality Ulster chief Colin Neill, and Northern Whig bar manager Gerard Keaney share their thoughts on the new coronavirus restrictions. Northern Ireland is to enter a period of intensified coronavirus restrictions after the Stormont executive announced closures of schools, pubs and restaurants. Pubs and restaurants will close for four weeks, with the exception of takeaways and deliveries, while schools will close on Monday for two weeks, one of which will cover the half-term break.
