what are the latest Covid rules under the ‘stay at home’ order?

Scotland also recorded its highest dea-th figure from coronavirus since May in the week ending Jan 10.

On Jan 16, Scotland began a mass vaccination programme, which would vaccinate 5,000 health and social care workers in Glasgow’s NHS Louisa Jordan Hospital. The rollout will see as many as 500 doses of the Pfizer vaccine administered every hour, from 8.45 am to 7.30 pm. 

As of Jan 22, first doses have been administered to 358,000 people in Scotland, with the over-80s and front-line care workers set to gain the first dose by mid-February.  

Eighty percent of care home residents in Scotland have received their first dose of the coronavirus vaccine, Nicola Sturgeon said on Jan 19.

Three million people in Scotland, the majority of the adult population, will have received their first dose of the vaccine by early May, the First Minister told MSPs. 

“That means that in around three months’ time, around three million people in total will have received at least the first dose of the vaccine – this is, of course, the majority of the adult population and includes everyone over the age of 50, and many younger people with an underlying health condition,” she said.

“The rest of the adult population will follow after that just as quickly as supplies allow.”

New guidance for those shielding has also been introduced. If you are shielding but cannot work from home, do not go to work – the Chief Medicial Officer will write to all that this applies to which will act as a doctors note.

Schools are to shut until Feb 1, with online lessons currently taking place.
