Only two of the new cases reported were in quarantine for their infectious period. There were 10 people in hospital, including two in intensive care and one person still requiring ventilation.
Fourteen of the new cases have been linked to known cases or clusters, while eight cases remain under early investigation.
So, what's changing? Contactless click-and-collect will be relaxed, real estate viewings allowed and increased outdoor sporting opportunities will be permitted this weekend.
Golf, tennis and rowing will be permitted, however, coaching, training and competitions will still be banned under the changes.
Face-to-face schooling was also discussed. Read the latest updates for education here.
