Health Minister Stephen Donnelly is self-isolating after experiencing “mild symptoms” of Covid-19 – but returned a negative test.
The Fianna Fail TD had been scheduled to lead a Department of Health press conference on Wednesday.
However it has now been rescheduled until Thursday, and will take place by video conference.
The Department confirmed that the Minister “has experienced mild symptoms of Covid-19” and is now self-isolating.
But a spokesman added that Mr Donnelly has received a negative test – although he will continue to work from home in line with public health advice.
