The Taoiseach has suggested that the majority of level 5 restrictions will remain in place until the middle of May.
This afternoon Micheal Martin told the Dáil that lockdown measures will be reviewed a week before April 5th, and then the government will decide what they believe is the best way forward for the following six weeks.
Last month, the government said it would look at whether case numbers would be low enough to ease the 5km travel rule, restrictions on small outdoor meetups and allow for the staggered return of construction.
Taoiseach Micheál Martin has warned people not to expect many other restrictions to be lifted.
In the Dail, he said "In the week leading into the 5th, we will have this situation reviewed. We'll take advice from public health and we will then advise in terms of what we believe is the best way forward for the following six weeks after that."
