As the coronavirus rate in Dublin continues to rise, people in the capital are likely to face extra restrictions from the weekend.
NPHET is expected to recommend that Dublin be put under 'level three' of restrictions, potentially with some variations or additions.
Government ministers have already said they will act on any advice NPHET issues, and they will meet tomorrow to discuss the recommendations.
While the guidelines may be tweaked, the Government's medium-term COVID-19 plan offers an idea of the restrictions Dubliners are likely to face.
Under the plan issued earlier this week, here are the measures that would be in place during phase three:
Household visits would be restricted to visitors from one other household only - this is already the case in Dublin, compared to three households in the rest of the country. People would also be advised against all other social or family gatherings.
People would be asked to stay in their county "apart from work, education and other essential purposes".
Restaurants and cafés would be allowed remain open, but with additional restrictions for indoor dining. While wet pubs would also be allowed remain open, the reopening of those pubs in the capital has already been delayed indefinitely.
Only 25 people could attend weddings and funerals, down from 50 under the level two guidance.
Other religious services would only take place online.
Organised indoor events in the like of theatres and cinemas would not be allowed, while museums and galleries would be told to close. They're allowed open in level two.
Organised outdoor gatherings such as art events could continue, but would be limited to just 15 people - compared to 100 under level two (200 in larger stadiums).
Outdoor sports training could continue in pods of up to 15, but no matches could take place. However, professional sport and senior club games could continue.
Gyms and swimming pools would be open for individual training only.
Everyone would be asked to work at home unless "absolutely necessary to attend in person". Under level two, people are instead asked to work from home "if possible".
Schools and creches would remain open, but third level and adult education facilities will be asked to "limit congregation as far as possible" and hold online classes wherever possible. It's expected students will still be allowed come into Dublin as needed, and will be allowed start their new courses.
All visits to nursing and care homes would be suspended, except for in 'critical and compassionate' circumstances.
