There have been 53 new cases of COVID-19 confirmed in the Republic, according to the Department of Health.
The latest figures bring the total amount of cases here to 26,162.
No further deaths have been reported in the last 24 hours, meaning the number of coronavirus-related deaths here stands at 1,763.
Of the latest cases, 80% concern people who are under 45 years of age.
Five are associated with outbreaks or close contacts of a confirmed case and four have been identified as community transmission.
25 cases are located in Dublin, 19 in Laois, six in Kildare and the remaining three are spread across two other counties.
The Acting Chief Medical Officer Dr Ronan Glynn said: "The source of transmission for over 90% of cases reported today has been identified.
"This is a positive development in light of the number of cases reported over the past few days.
“However, our five day average for cases reported is now 47.
"We all need to continue to adopt a prevention mindset and continue making good choices to protect ourselves and others while trying to live safely with COVID-19."
Dr Glynn said: “People are still susceptible, this virus has not changed. We know how to break the chains of transmission.
"Let’s stay the course by physically distancing, washing hands regularly, wearing a face covering where appropriate, avoiding crowds and doing all we can to protect each other.”
Yesterday, Dr Glynn described the five-day average number of cases as "clearly concerning".
