Scottish Secretary Alister Jack has developed mild symptoms of coronavirus in the past 24 hours and is self-isolating, he has said.
Mr Jack, the Conservative MP for Dumfries and Galloway, said he has not been tested for the virus and his symptoms are a mild temperature and a cough.
He said: “In the past 24 hours, I have developed mild symptoms associated with coronavirus.
“In line with medical guidance, I am self-isolating and working from home.”
The announcement follows the diagnosis of Prime Minister Boris Johnson and Health secretary, Matt Hancock.
Mr Johnson, who is 55, was tested for Covid-19 on Thursday afternoon after he developed a temperature and cough.
It is believed he is the first leader of a G7 country to have contracted the infection.
Mr Hancock tested positive yesterday and upon medical advice will be self-isolating until next Thursday.
The UK is experiencing the first weekend under lockdown measures that have been put in place by the government to help prevent the spread of Covid-19.
Jason Leith, National Clinical Director for the Scottish Government, is encouraging people to stay at home and the rules remain the same.
In an online video he said: “I wanted to say how well everybody has done this week by staying at home to save lives in this first week of Scotland’s new rules.

“But the unfortunate thing is, this is weekend and normally, that would be a time for going out with friends and perhaps going for meals and going to bars and cafes, but the rules stay the same – even for the weekend, the rules stay the same.
“Please stay at home to save lives… we really need you to stick at it.”
