There are also some changes to the advice regarding close contacts and restriction of movements.

"For those who have received a booster at least one week ago, they will have to restrict movement for five days and take three antigen tests," the Taoiseach said on Friday.

"For those that have not yet received a booster they must restrict their movement for 10 days. The HSE will consider the best testing regime for people in this category."
