Scotland has recorded another 21 deaths linked to Covid-19 in the last 24 hours.
Figures released by the Scottish Government on Saturday also showed that there had been 7833 new cases of the virus.
The death toll under the current measurement, of people who died after testing positive for coronavirus in the previous 28 days, now stands at 10,059.
Of 1540 people currently in hospital with recently confirmed Covid-19, 46 of those are intensive care as of 2pm on Saturday.
Restrictions on large-scale outdoor crowds in Scotland will be lifted from Monday, meaning stadiums can operate at full capacity for the return of the Scottish Premiership and the upcoming rugby Six Nations tournament.
New guidance stipulates that organisers of large events of 1000 or more people should check the vaccine passport status of at least 50% of attendees, rather than the current 20%.
Furthermore, from Monday the definition of “fully vaccinated” will include having a booster if a second dose of coronavirus vaccine was received more than four months ago.
Over three million people have now had a booster jag in Scotland.
