The Taoiseach has warned that the government will be cautious and conservative when it comes to the reopening of the economy.
Level 5 restrictions are due to last until at least March 5th.
Taoiseach Micheál Martin says there’s still some way to go before the measures can be eased.
It comes after Professor Philip Nolan, who chairs NPHET's modelling advisory group, says we are on track to report as few as 200 new Covid cases per day by the end of the month.
Speaking on his way into Cabinet on Tuesday morning, the Taoiseach said he will update people soon on any plans to re-open society.
"We'll bring greater clarity to that towards the middle of this month, but we are in mind that we will be conservative and cautious in terms of any re-opening.
"The objective is prolonged suppression of the virus to get the numbers down very low, and to keep them low".
