The cluster of COVID-19 cases at the Mental Health Rehabilitation Centre (MHRC) in Glen has risen to 92 cases, with 49 cases confirmed on Sunday.
It was the third consecutive day that health officials were reporting cases at the centre, including six cases among staff members.
According to National Emergency Management Organisation (NEMO) updates on the weekend, the cases were identified as part of the ongoing contact tracing and general screening.

The cases included 47 patients and two members of staff.
On Saturday, of the 23 cases confirmed, 18 were patients at the MHRC and two members of staff.
The other three were from tests done at flu clinics the previous day.
And, on Friday, NEMO announced 23 cases at MHRC, made up of 21 patients and two staff members.
Three other new positives are results for one person who tested positive on quarantine day five, one who tested positive on exit screening and one contact of a known positive.
NEMO said isolation and quarantine measures continue to be implemented along with additional testing to ensure containment of any further spread in the facility.
Screening of admissions will also continue as a measure to reduce the risk of the introduction of new infections.
