Nicola Sturgeon: situation still precarious

Businesses were relieved after the Scottish government decided not to extend the vaccine passport scheme.

First Minister Nicola Sturgeon said the decision was “finely balanced” but cases of Covid were stable.

The current certification measures will remain in place for at least another three weeks.

She told MSPs: “We have decided not to extend the scope of the scheme. Although our situation is precarious, cases are stable and we have considered the impact it would have on businesses and at this stage extension would not be proportionate.”

Marc Crothall, CEO of the Scottish Tourism Alliance, said: “The Scottish Tourism Alliance welcomes the First Minister’s announcement that vaccine passports will not be extended to the hospitality sector and that alternative measures can be used within businesses already implementing the scheme.
