The Cabinet is meeting this lunchtime, to make final decisions on what restrictions can be eased over the next month.
It looks now as though no restrictions will be eased on April 5th as the Government adopts a more cautious approach, after a stark warning from NPHET last night about the risks of a fourth wave.
Ministers have said they want nothing to endanger the full re-opening of schools on the 12th - and so any easing of other restrictions will be done on a phased basis through the month of April.
That will include allowing people to travel within their county, the phased return of construction starting with home building, and the return of underage sport training.
Golf and tennis are set to be allowed, along with meet-ups with one other household in an outdoor setting.
Taoiseach Míchéal Martin will address the nation later, to announce their decisions.
