The news comes after the Prime Minister said yesterday that people in the south who test positive for coronavirus will no longer be legally required to self-isolate from Thursday.

We’ve told you how the vaccine passport system is due to end in days – Ms Sturgeon confirming on Monday that the mandatory requirement will be lifted.

She told parliament: “I can confirm, firstly, that the COVID certification program requiring certain venues and events to verify participants’ vaccine or testing status will end next Monday, February 28.

“The app that supports the program will remain operational, however, so any business that wishes to pursue COVID certification on a voluntary basis to reassure customers will be able to do so.”

But the Prime Minister has warned Holyrood would have to dip into its own coffers if it is to continue the pivotal virus policy costing the Treasury around £2bn a month.

Meanwhile, Scottish Health Secretary Humza Yousaf has insisted that free testing for the virus and self-isolation should continue until public health guidance says otherwise.

It came as Mr Johnson announced that free universal testing would end on April 1 – even for members of the general public with symptoms – as part of his plan to “live with Covid”.
