The review documents point to high levels of community transmission in Aberdeenshire, and we have had workplace outbreaks.

A couple of weeks ago, the First Minister told me in the chamber that deeper analysis would be done on the nature of infection rates in Aberdeenshire. Can she give more detail on the types of community transmission that have increased the infection’s spread? Other than the increased restrictions that come with level 3, are any targeted actions being taken, particularly in relation to workplace outbreaks? Is it advised that travel between Aberdeen city and Aberdeenshire should happen only when necessary, and that that might not include Christmas shopping, which should perhaps be done locally?
