The Department of Health has been notified of 1,224 new cases of Covid-19.
The number of people in intensive care units is 63, down three on yesterday.
There are 278 people being treated for the virus, up 17 on yesterday.
It comes as preparations are continuing ahead of a further easing of Covid-19 restrictions tomorrow.
The new measures will include a gradual return to workplaces, as well as changes to organised indoor and outdoor group activities.
In a statement, Tánaiste and Minister for Enterprise Leo Varadkar described tomorrow as a “big day for thousands of businesses who are opening for the first time since the pandemic and thousands more people getting back to work”.
From tomorrow, indoor dance, yoga, pilates studios, art classes and indoor sports and fitness classes will be permitted for up to 100 people provided participants are fully vaccinated or have recently recovered from Covid-19.
All restrictions on outdoor group activities will also be removed. The lifting of almost all remaining restrictions has been earmarked for 22 October.
Office workers, who largely worked from home during the pandemic, may also return from tomorrow in what the Government has termed a “phased return”.
