There have been 1,154 further confirmed cases of COVID-19 in Ireland.
Latest available figures show there are 297 patients hospitalised with the virus - of which 63 are in ICU.
The five-day moving average of cases is just under 1,328.
It comes as more COVID-19 restrictions have been eased, with Taoiseach Micheál Martin saying it marks another "significant milestone" for the country.
A phased return to offices and workplaces is underway, with many workers likely to be returning to their workplace for the first time since last March over the coming days and weeks.
A range of indoor group activities are now allowed to take place, while restrictions around outdoor activities are also being eased significantly.
It is the final stage of the phased re-opening ahead of the planned removal of almost all remaining restrictions on October 22nd.
Speaking about the changes, Mr Martin said earlier: "Today marks another significant, and welcome, milestone for Ireland as we continue to emerge from the COVID-19 pandemic.
"It is an important day for businesses welcoming staff back to the workplace, and for indoor sports, arts, and cultural classes.
"If we continue this progress, we can look forward to the further removal of public health restrictions, to be replaced by guidance and advice.
"Of course, we cannot let our guard down, and we all have a part to play in protecting our hospitals and most vulnerable".
Meanwhile the United States has announced vaccinated people will be able to travel from the European Union - including Ireland - from November onwards.
All foreign travellers will need to demonstrate proof of vaccination before boarding, as well as proof of a negative COVID-19 test taken within three days of the flight.
But those fully vaccinated will not need to quarantine.
Airlines will be required to collect contacting tracing information - including phone numbers and email addresses - from international travellers.
The changes only effect air travel, with the order restricting overland travel from Canada and Mexico still in place and reviewed on a monthly basis.
