A Scottish official who lectured the public on staying home during the coronavirus outbreak has now resigned after being cautioned by police for failing to adhere to her own advice.

Catherine Calderwood, the country’s chief medical officer, quit her post on Sunday – the same day a newspaper published photos of her and her family walking their dogs at their second home about an hour outside of Edinburgh. Scottish television had aired advertisements over the weekend with Calderwood saying, “To help save lives, stay at home.”

“I am deeply sorry for my actions and the mistakes I have made,” Calderwood said in a statement Sunday evening, noting how the “justifiable focus on my behavior risks becoming a distraction from the hugely important job that government and the medical profession has to do in getting the country through this coronavirus pandemic.”
