Scottish Tory leader Douglas Ross is isolating after testing positive for Covid-19.
The MSP and MP has had to cancel events on the campaign trail this week ahead of the upcoming local elections.
In a statement, Ross said: “Unfortunately, I’ve had to cancel events this week as I’ve tested positive for Covid.
“I’m looking forward to getting back out on the campaign trail soon to talk about how Scottish Conservative candidates will deliver local action on local issues.”
Coronavirus infection rates in Scotland remain the highest in the United Kingdom with one in 12 people expected to have had the virus in the latest figures.
Both Scotland’s deputy first minister John Swinney and justice secretary Keith Brown are in isolation after testing positive last week, however Holyrood is in recess.
High rates of the virus led Nicola Sturgeon to delay the easing of mask-wearing rules, although from Monday it is no longer a legal requirement to wear face coverings in places of worship, while attending a marriage ceremony, a civil partnership registration, or a funeral service or commemorative event.
