Cabinet Ministers will this afternoon consider plans to introduce a mandatory self-isolation period for anyone arriving into Ireland.
Ministers are meeting this afternoon to consider the next steps in the State coronavirus response.
Under the plan anyone arriving into the country would face a mandatory two-week period of self-isolation.
They would also be legally obliged to fill in a locator form to detailing where they plan to isolate.
The form is already in place; however, it has been optional up to now.
the National Public Health Emergency Team submitted the advice last week and Cabinet is considering it again today.
NPHET has been meeting again this morning and will submit it latest advice to ministers this afternoon.
Cabinet will also discuss plans for the predictive grading of the Leaving Cert.
The meeting comes at the end of the first week of phase one of the easing of lockdown restrictions, with the first real evidence coming in on what the impact has been on the economy.
Government is not due to make a decision on moving to phase two of the plan until June 5th.
