Scotland’s Covid-19 restrictions are to be eased, with nightclubs reopening, large indoor events resuming and social distancing rules dropped.
The changes will take effect from Monday 24 January after a “significant fall” in new case numbers.
However people are still being asked to work from home and to take lateral flow tests before meeting with others.
First Minister Nicola Sturgeon told MSPs that Scotland had “turned the corner on the Omicron wave”.
Guidance advising adults against meeting up with more than three households at a time will also be scrapped, along with curbs on indoor contact sports.
And ministers have decided against extending the vaccine passport scheme to more hospitality settings “at this stage”.
Ms Sturgeon said that while Omicron is still infecting “large numbers of people”, there had been a significant fall in the number of new infections over the past two weeks.
