The Taoiseach has refused to give a timeline for when a decision will be made on moving the country to level five restrictions.

The cabinet sub-committee on COVID is expected to meet tomorrow afternoon to consider the situation.

A general consensus is emerging in government that they don't believe this decision can be delayed beyond the weekend.

A group of senior ministers will meet tomorrow afternoon with a full cabinet meeting possible after that.

That said Taoiseach Micheál Martin wasn't definitive earlier about when they'll make a decision.

Sinn Féin leader Mary Lou McDonald has said people can't be left in the lurch.

But Tánaiste Leo Varadkar says a number of questions need to be answered by NPHET first.

It is a massive decision with wide reaching consequences, and the government will have to decide whether or not to go against NPHET's advice for a second time.
