No new Covid restrictions will be imposed this week by the Government as the number of patients decrease marginally.
Numbers of people contracting the virus are decreasing slightly.
Tanaiste Leo Varadkar said it appeared the positivity rate of Covid-19 tests was “starting to level off.”
“We will, as a Government, seek to avoid imposing extreme restrictions if we can,” he said.
However, he added that it was too soon to be certain.
According to The Irish Times, a source close to the discussions has said Government Ministers believe the approach to the fourth wave should not be the same as earlier waves.
This comes as the State has recorded a further 3,666 new cases of Covid-19 on Tuesday.
