There has been no new Covid-19 deaths in northern Ireland for the fifth day running, according to the Department of Health.
It means the death toll remains at 554.
There were four further positive cases of the coronavirus reported in that time, taking that particular total to 5,765.
Meanwhile, the wearing of face coverings on public transport in Northern Ireland becomes mandatory from Friday.
Infrastructure Minister Nichola Mallon was unequivocal in her response to an Assembly question that face coverings are not a substitute for social distancing.
“We’re very clear that the strongest way of protecting yourself and others from this virus is through good respiratory hygiene and washing and social distancing,” she said.
