NPHET has postponed a key meeting where it was set to discuss whether any level 5 restrictions can be eased next month.
The meeting was due to take place tomorrow, but the health officials will now meet on Monday as they want more time to consider the current covid-19 figures before advising the government on its next steps.
It's hoped that the 5km travel limit can be eased from April 5th and that some construction can also resume.
The National Public Health Emergency team will advise the government on Monday.
A final cabinet decision on what the following weeks will look like will come on Tuesday.
Speaking this afternoon, Taoiseach Micheál Martin says they haven't decided yet what the next few months will look like.
He said "No decision has been made in relation to the post-April 5th situation. No decision has been made."
The Taoiseach says they will engage with the latest public health advice before making a decision.
Micheal Martin has also acknowledged the "enormous stress and strain and difficulties" the current lockdown is having on people.
