There have now been 30,164 confirmed cases in the Republic of Ireland, and the coronavirus has claimed 1,781 lives in the state.
This includes 6 new cases in Galway, 182 in Dublin, 25 in Kildare, 19 in Limerick, 15 in each of Wexford and Louth, with the remaining cases are spread across 16 different counties including Sligo.
Dr. Ronan Glynn, Acting Chief Medical Officer, Department of Health, said; "182 of today's cases are located in Dublin and at least 44 of these are associated with community transmission".
Dr Colm Henry announced that 54 schools had confirmed cases of Covid-19 but all but one of these schools had an isolated case.
"They took a decision, rather than closing schools again or closing childcare and business again, that they would go really hard on gatherings within the home and that is an option that I think we will have to consider if the numbers keep rising", Varadkar said. No further deaths were reported and the death toll there remains 557.

Trump had allegedly said, "If it comes out, I'm not sure how it would play with my supporters". According to federal prosecutors and Cohen's own guilty pleas, he, too, is a liar and a cheat.
Today's figures bring the total number of cases to date to 29,774, while the number of deaths remains at 1,777.
Earlier today, Tánaiste Leo Varadkar said the Government's new Covid-19 roadmap will seek to reopen worldwide travel and bring Ireland's Green List in line with a European-wide list of safe countries for travel.
48% are confirmed to be associated with outbreaks or are close contacts of a confirmed case, while 19 cases have been identified as community transmission.
Mr Varadkar said if we are serious about living with the virus it means more travel and while worldwide travel started the spread of coronavirus in Ireland, it is no longer the main cause of Covid-19.
