The IRFU have said that all games involving Ireland and Italy are going ahead as planned.
Italy are due in Dublin next week for the men's and women's matches and in Cork for the under 20s game, but there have been doubts due to the coronavirus outbreak in Italy.
Yesterday, the Pro 14 match between Ulster and Benetton scheduled to be held in Italy this weekend was postponed.
The IRFU say the games will go ahead as planned at this point.
