The capital is hovering between Level 2 and Level 3 on the new government guidelines.
People in Dublin are being encouraged not to leave the county to stop the spread of Covid-19.
The capital is hovering between Level 2 and Level 3 with pubs not allowed to reopen, as well as specific restriction on household visits and crowds at sporting events.
If Dubliners do leave the county, they are being told to to limit their interactions to one household.
Tanaiste Leo Varadkar has appealed to people in the city to limit their movements:
The level of the virus circulating in our city and county has increased more than tenfold in the past two months,” he explained.
“If this continues, it may not be possible to keep the virus out of our hospitals, nursing homes and factories no matter how hard we try. We’ll experience a second wave of hospitalisations, people needing admission to ICU and sadly, more deaths”.
