Scotland’s chief medical officer, Catherine Calderwood, issued a formal apology Sunday after she was photographed visiting her second home with her family, despite a stay-at-home order.

Chief Constable Iain Livingstone said in a statement that local officers had “visited” Calderwood and “spoke to her about her actions, reiterated critical advice and issued a warning about her future conduct.”

“The legal instructions on not leaving your home without a reasonable excuse apply to everyone,” Livingstone said in a statement.

"Social distancing is the key intervention to curtail the spread of coronavirus and it is essential the instructions are followed to protect each other, support key workers, take strain from the NHS, and save lives. Individuals must not make personal exemptions bespoke to their own circumstances.”

In photos published by the Scottish Sun, Calderwood was pictured at her “coastal retreat” in Earlsferry, more than an hour from her Edinburgh home.
