Sturgeon ends self-isolation after negative Covid test
First Minister took a PCR test
Nicola Sturgeon has received a negative Covid test after being forced to self-isolate following contact with someone who had earlier tested positive.
Scotland’s First Minister, who has been fully vaccinated, revealed on Twitter on Sunday night that the NHS Test & Protect service had contacted her and that she had taken a PCR test.
This morning she tweeted that she was “relieved to report that my PCR test is negative”.
However, she said she would continue doing regular lateral flow tests as an ‘added precaution’ and urged others to do the same.
Ms Sturgeon attended a number of functions in the past week. On Wednesday she was at the Golden Jubilee Hospital with health secretary Humza Yousaf and 24 hours later she joined Edinburgh University’s graduation celebration.
