Following a recommendation from the National Public Health Emergency Team (NPHET), household visits will be limited to a maximum of six people from one other household.

A statement from the group said: "NPHET have further advised that Government extend the Level Two measures currently in place for a further period of three weeks, with Donegal and Dublin remaining at Level Three."

A Cabinet meeting was not required to extend the restrictions on household gatherings as such changes are provided for in the Government’s Living with Covid roadmap.
