Sturgeon has urged people in Scotland to keep following the lockdown rules ahead of Easter weekend.
She said, “I know how hard it is for people to do that, it will seem even harder over this Easter holiday weekend, especially for families with children and indeed for the children themselves and for older people who would normally be spending time with their grandchildren.
“Please stay in touch with family, friends and loved ones in whatever alternative way best works for you.
“Reach out to and look out for people even as you stay physically apart from them, but please do follow the rules and stay at home over Easter.”
She added, that the lockdown in Scotland will continue “for some weeks to come.”
On Wednesday the Welsh government also confirmed that their lockdown will continue. We are wating to hear on the England’s lockdown measures later today from Downing Street.
