The government's new COVID roadmap has been described as confused and confusing.
The plan contains five levels of restrictions based on how many cases of COVID there are in a particular county.
But Dublin is being treated differently to the rest of the country.
People in the capital are being asked not to leave the county if they don't have to and a maximum of six people from two households can now meet.
The government made much of this plan being a clear roadmap for the next nine months.
The Government has today published Resilience & Recovery 2020-2021: Plan for Living with Covid-19, which will help us to go about our daily lives as much as possible, while managing the behaviour of the virus. The Framework consists of 5 Levels.https://t.co/geCmY3jxsl #COVID19 pic.twitter.com/NXmZpL3TzA

It has five levels of restrictions - with the entire country being placed on level two.
But Dublin has had more measures implemented - leaving it somewhere between points two and three.
A new international travel regime will start next Monday - with countries like Germany, Poland, Iceland, Lithuania, Finland and Sweden likely to be added to the safe to travel list.
Spectator sport is also to return with 200 people allowed to watch a match in stadiums that can hold at least 5,000 with the government examining having bigger crowds in the largest stadiums like Croke Park and the Aviva.
