I can no longer defend the Scottish Government's approach to Covid - we're all the way back to "let it rip" and "take it on the chin"
This is beyond parody. We're at the peak of the pandemic. Infections have reached a record high. And yet this, apparently, is the moment to phase out mandatory mask-wearing indoors.

After two years of avoiding #Covid_19 I tested positive this morning. I will be self-isolating in accordance with the rules and will try to engage with @scotparl business if I feel better than I do just now.— John Swinney (@JohnSwinney) March 30, 2022
