NICOLA STURGEON has taken to the podium before First Minister’s Questions on Thursday at noon.
Addressing parliament she gave an update on the latest figures in Scotland and reminded the population to get both their vaccines and a booster – which is said to be the most effective against the Omicron variant – and limit their interactions with other households.
She also continued that she is exploring the possibility of a lockdown taking place. To do this she will need additional funding from the UK Government, which at the moment does not look likely.
This could potentially mean fans could be locked out of football grounds if Sturgeon gets her wish.
