The government is working on a new medium term plan for the country to deal with the coronavirus.
The government's new medium term plan to deal with Covid-19 will aim to get Ireland into a 'status blue' period where the virus is surpressed.
The Irish Times reports the plan, agreed at a Cabinet sub-committee yesterday, will see colour-coded statuses given to areas depending on its levels of coronavirus.
However a blue status will only come into effect when vaccinations or treatments are available.
The Health Minister Wicklow TD Stephen Donnelly says more localised lockdowns may need to be introduced to stop a spike in Covid 19 cases.
