The number of Covid-19 hospitalisations has fallen by nearly two thirds since the peak of the third wave.
866 more people have tested positive for the virus, and a further 52 patients have died.
There were 28 new cases of Covid 19 in Mayo, 63 in Galway, 14 in Roscommon, 8 in Sligo and less than 5 in Leitrim.
The number of people with Covid being treated in hospital is down again to 943 - with 167 in intensive care.
Professor Phillip Nolan, chair of NPHET's modelling group, says infection rates in hospital and care settings are down.
