Micheál Martin, Leo Varadkar and Eamon Ryan will meet this evening to discuss bringing Ireland out of level five restrictions.
A full cabinet meeting is scheduled for the morning when Ministers will discuss what should be done when the current lockdown expires next week.
It's expected NPHET will be cautious in re-opening the country while the government's preferred option is to go to level three restrictions.
Taoiseach Micheál Martin has said they haven't made decisions on specific sectors opening yet.
"I'm not going to get into specifics... suffice to say that Irish people has made a lot of sacrifices," he said.
The Taoiseach said he understands how difficult level 5 restrictions has been on people but said "the good news is, what you've been doing is working."
He went on to warn about potential "super-spreader" events that may come about after Level Five restrictions ease.
Taoiseach Micheál Martin has said level five has worked but there does need to be caution:
"Gatherings and congregation with alcohol facilitate the spread of the virus."
"Ultimately, vigilance is key, human behaviour is key and how we behave collectively is very important."
