Scottish first minister Nicola Sturgeon has urged families not to book overseas breaks during the October school holidays.
Addressing the Scottish parliament, Sturgeon said the holidays should be viewed as "an opportunity to further limit social interaction".
It comes as ministers in Scotland roll out additional measures to prevent the spread of coronavirus; Scotland recorded 383 new cases on Tuesday (22 September).
"Please think of the October break as an opportunity to further limit social interaction," said Sturgeon.
"And, given that this is a global pandemic, please do not book travel overseas for the October break if it is not essential."
