It comes amid debate over social distancing regulations.
The head of the Health Service Executive (HSE) Paul Reid has said any guidance on social distancing will only come from the NPHET.
However, he acknowledged that reducing social distancing limits would "significantly" increase hospital capacity.
The two metre rule to stop the spread of COVID-19 is still in place by Government, with the Taoiseach Leo Varadkar saying there is no change.
Mr Reid said earlier: "From our perspective, the NPHET guidance and Government guidance at the minute is the two metre and that's what we are planning in terms of framework for new services to work through.
"Obviously that does have significant implications for us in terms of emergency departments, outpatients, waiting rooms, etc.
"So two metres will reduce the volume that we could have attending at a particular time.
"But we have to work off what the current guidance is - the current guidance is two metres."
