Restrictions to control the spread of the coronavirus have been extended for another three weeks.

The measures had been due to expire on Sunday night, but they will now remain in place until Tuesday May 5th.

Schools will also remain closed until further notice following a recommendation by the public health emergency team.

Leo Varadkar says the sacrifices we're making have been making a difference and the spread of the virus has slowed.

However, he has warned that we cannot become complacent:

"What we're doing is difficult but it is making a difference and we have to keep going.

"We need to persevere and we need to maintain our discipline and resolve."

The Health Minister says the Garda enforcement powers brought in to help slow the spread of Covid-19 will continue for as long as restrictions are in place.
