The Department of Health has been notified of 1,126 new cases of COVID-19 in Ireland.

There are currently 123 people in hospital being treated for the disease, in comparison to 105 yesterday.

There are 22 patients in intensive care, an increase of one person compared to Saturday.

The HSE continue to be affected by the recent cyberattack and the daily case figure “may change due to future data review, validation and update.”

It comes as the CEO of the HSE urged people to be mindful of keeping themselves safe when indoor hospitality reopens on Monday.

Paul Reid said that while hospital numbers associated with the coronavirus are rising, the vaccination rollout continues apace.

More than 5.5m vaccine doses have been administered to date, with 83% of adults now partially inoculated and over 68% fully vaccinated.

As hospitality, society and the economy opens up further, let's all embrace it safely and make it work," he said.

Meanwhile, indoor dining and drinking will be allowed to resume for the first time this year on Monday.

Only guests who are fully vaccinated against COVID-19 or those who have recovered from the virus, as well as their children, will be allowed entry.

Only six people aged over 13 will be allowed at a table in a pub or restaurant, and the combined total of people sitting at a table cannot exceed 15 overall.

On entry to a premises, there must be "a defined, managed and supervised entrance point with an appropriate queue management system within the business or at point of entry to seating areas, that is controlled by personnel who have been instructed in the process".

Adults must have proof of immunity, such as an EU Digital COVID Cert, and photo ID.
