Scotland has recorded 1386 new cases of coronavirus and 9 deaths in the last 24 hours.
Official statistics showed that 359 were in hospital with the virus as of Friday, with 41 people in intensive care.
Just over 4m people have received their first dose of the Covid-19 vaccine, whilst around 3.3m people have had their second dose.
It comes ahead of most coronavirus restrictions in Scotland coming to an end from Monday.
Earlier this week, First Minister Nicola Sturgeon confirmed that the lifting of measures will include an end to social distancing and limits on the size of social gatherings.
However, the wearing of face coverings in some public spaces will continue, with Sturgeon saying that they are “likely to be mandated in law for some time to come.”
Despite the easing of restrictions, the First Minister has urged people to continue to take care and caution.
She said: “This change is significant and hard-earned. The sacrifices everyone has made over the past year-and-a-half can never be overstated.
“However, while this move will restore a substantial degree of normality, it is important to be clear that it does not signal the end of the pandemic or a return to life exactly as we knew it before Covid struck.
“Declaring freedom from, or victory over, this virus is premature.”
