Nicola Sturgeon will be giving a press conference today from St Andrew’s House in Edinburgh to update the country on coronavirus statistics.
For the next two weeks, the daily briefings will only take place on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday, to give the team who prepares them some time off.
Come August, they will be held every day, as before.
What time is Nicola Sturgeon’s announcement?
The First Minister will start her press conference on Tuesday at 12.15 pm, 15 minutes earlier than the usual time.
This time change will be permanent.
How can you tune in?
The briefing is streamed on the Scottish Government’s Twitter page here.
It will also be aired on television on the BBC Scotland channel, as well as on BBC Scotland Radio station.
What is the First Minister expected to say?
Ms Sturgeon will start the briefing with the updated numbers of positive cases of coronavirus in Scotland, before taking questions from the press.
The First Minister has said more than once that these briefings are about coronavirus, and not politics, although it seems unlikely that questions on today’s news about Russia attempting to influence the Scottish Independence referendum in 2014 will not be asked.
