The HSE has apologised to people who are waiting for Coronavirus test results.
Some people have been waiting as long as a week to get the results of their tests.
In a media briefing this morning, it was cofirmed that not all of the country's testing centres are open today.
However, the Health Service Executive says there are enough open to cope with the current level of demand.
Assistant Secretary at the Department of the Taoiseach Liz Canavan says the HSE is trying to improve turnaround times:
"This week the HSE Public Analyst Laboratory at Cherry Orchard and a Department of Agriculture laboratory have come on-line bringing additional capacity.
The @HSELive has asked us to apologise to all those waiting for test results and wish to assure the public that they are making every endeavour to improve turnaround times within the current international constraints."
