The Cabinet is this evening expected to approve moving to phase three of the easing of coronavirus restrictions.
Face coverings look set to be made mandatory on public transport as capacity increases to deal with extra volumes of people going to work.
Today could be the final cabinet meeting for the current group of ministers, if a new government is formed over the weekend.
Their last act is likely to be approving moving to phase three of the easing of lockdown restrictions, meaning that from Monday most of the country will be able to reopen.
Hairdressers, barbers, gyms, pools, cinemas and churches will all be allowed to open, with social distancing and some restrictions on numbers.
Hotels, hostels, restaurants, cafés and pubs which serve food will also be given the green light to reopen.
A maximum of 50 people will be allowed at indoor events and 200 outdoors - with those numbers increasing from July 20th if the COVID-19 numbers remain low.
The restrictions on movement will also be lifted, allowing people to travel anywhere within Ireland.
It's expected there will be a discussion on foreign travel and air bridges with other countries that have a handle on the spread of the virus.
The Government has also asked the National Public Health Emergency Team (NPHET) to consider increasing the cap of 50 people at religious services.
Meanwhile, Transport Minister Shane Ross will also recommend to his colleagues that facemasks be made mandatory on public transport.
Capacity on public transport will be increased to 50% to account for more people going to work, but that will be conditional on wearing a facemask or covering.
Cabinet Ministers will meet in Dublin Castle at around 3pm for what will likely be the last major act of this government.
