The current regulations are available on the Department of Health website:

Some of the restrictions are law through regulation, while others are guidance.
Everyone is legally required to comply with the regulations.
If you fail to comply with the regulations without reasonable excuse, you are committing an offence. For some offences you may be given a fixed penalty or a fine on summary prosecution.
