Scotland's route out of lockdown will come in stages, with the country's stay-at-home order set to end on 5 April, followed weeks later by a return to a system of levels.

She said the Scottish government would be able to give more details in mid-March on how restrictions will be eased from April onwards.

The detail she unveiled this afternoon included:

- 15 March - Next phase of school returns; outdoor non-contact group sports; more mixing between households
- 5 April - Stay-at-home order to be lifted; communal worship; final phase of return to schools
- 26 April - Scotland to move back into Level 3
