Chief Medical Officer Dr Tony Holohan said: “No single intervention is perfect at preventing the spread of COVID-19, it takes many different individual actions to slow down the spread of the disease.
"Every action you take is another layer of protection between you and the virus - the more layers you have the more protection you have.”
Today's figures also show the national 14-day incidence rate of the virus has fallen to 369 per 100,000.
