Two people have died of coronavirus in the last 24 hours.
Figures released by the Scottish Government this afternoon reveal 572 new cases of the virus have been recorded overnight.
The total number of cases in Scotland now stands at 202,084 with the total death toll at 7,131, of people who have tested positive within 28 days.
There are 837 people in hospital with the virus and 78 are being treated in intensive care.
The news comes as care home relatives prepare for the reintroduction of indoor visiting this week.
Concerns are raised that a leading care home provider has been ignored new Covid-19 visitor guidelines.
Care Home Relatives Scotland called for relatives to boycott sending loved ones to Balhousie Care Group sites, run by businessman Tony Banks.
The Angus-based company, which manages 25 facilities across the country with 900 residents, issued its own visiting guidelines, which are introduced on Thursday.
Balhousie’s rules limit the number of visits to one per week, allow just one visitor and prohibit physical contact.
However, Scottish Government guidelines published last week said up to two visitors could be admitted to care homes.
