Lockdown restrictions in Scotland will remain in force until at least the end of February, Nicola Sturgeon has announced.
The Scottish Government previously said the lockdown for Level 4 areas – mainland Scotland and some islands areas – would last until at least mid-February.
Ms Sturgeon said depending on progress “we may be able to look at a careful and gradual easing at around the start of March”.
Schools in Scotland will return on a phased basis from February 22 subject to final confirmation in two weeks’ time.
Speaking at the Scottish Parliament, the First Minister also announced plans to introduce a managed quarantine requirement for anyone who arrives directly into Scotland, regardless of which country they have come from.
