Deputy Commissioner, Policing and Security, John Twomey said: "The vast majority of people are complying with the non-essential travel regulations. We thank them for that.
"Unfortunately, there are still some people who are putting themselves, their loved ones and everyone they come into contact with at risk of getting COVID-19 by not complying with public health regulations. There are people dying and are seriously ill from COVID-19. Our health service and all who work in it are under serious pressure. People need to adhere to the public health regulations to help save lives and reduce that pressure.
"Please keep yourself and others safe by staying home. Only make essential journeys. Limit your contacts. Practice social distancing. Wash your hands."
