The political ceasefire is over and partisan pot shots have become the norm in the coronavirus debate.
Everyone knew the cross-party consensus was not going to last and, much in the same way the public's tolerance has waned, political tensions have once again heightened.
The outbreak of the virus after the election resulted in a truce among the parties, and the Government was given space to implement measures to tackle the pandemic.
Society-altering legislation sailed through the Dáil with few questions raised by Opposition TDs. Grumblings from Fianna Fáil TDs have naturally enough fallen silent now that they have decided Fine Gael should remain in power.
But in recent weeks, Sinn Féin, the main opposition party elect, also seemed to have decommissioned its political attacks on the Government.
Sinn Féin leader Mary Lou McDonald was out of action for much of this period as she fought her personal battle against the coronavirus.
Ms McDonald's return to public life after her illness has seen her slowly, but surely ramp up her party's attacks on the Government's response to the outbreak.
Last Friday, on 'The Late Late Show', she was almost complimentary of the Government's handling of the crisis while also noting there were areas where things could have been done better.
However, since then, there has been a noticeable shift in the Sinn Féin leader's commentary on the health emergency.
On Newstalk, she accused ministers of "kite-flying" around when restrictions will be lifted.
She also wrote directly to Taoiseach Leo Varadkar to tell him he was causing "anxiety and confusion" over the easing of social-distancing rules.
Ms McDonald's health spokesperson Louise O'Reilly went further, issuing a statement saying that the Government was seeking to "scapegoat" the public for their "own failures on testing".
In another statement, Ms O'Reilly said the Government was damaging businesses and the public through "spin" and "obfuscation" on restrictions.
Newly minted Labour Party leader Alan Kelly has also come out swinging about what he says is a lack of transparency around the decisions taken by the National Public Health Emergency Team. It is also a clear signal that Mr Kelly has no interest in entering into government with Fianna Fáil and Fine Gael.
The increase in political attacks comes as the Taoiseach prepares to make a significant announcement tomorrow on the lifting of lockdown rules.
The political pressure was not there when he introduced the national quarantine in March, but he won't have it so easy this time around.
