Yesterday, Scotland’s First Minister urged everyone to do their part to help slow the spread of the virus.
Nicola Sturgeon said: “For the moment I do need to stress the vital importance of everyone playing their part in limiting spread of the virus, the more we all do this the more chance we have of avoiding the need for the re-imposition of any formal restrictions.”
She added: “We all have some control over transmission so there are three steps in particular that we must all take to keep the virus, or get the virus, under control and slow down transmission.”
The First Minister urged people to get vaccinated if they are eligible, test themselves regularly and follow the rules that are still in place and the public health guidance.
