Scotland has recorded 6,221 new cases of Covid-19 the last 24 hours.
This time last week, the daily figure stood at 11,827.
No new deaths have been recorded in the last 24 hours, but officials noted that register offices are generally closed at the weekends.
It means the death toll under this measurement, of people who tested positive for the virus in the past 28 days, remains at 10,059.
A total of 1,557 people were in hospital on Sunday with recently confirmed Covid-19, five fewer than the day before, and 43 were in intensive care, up one.
A note from the Scottish Government said that from Monday, cases are reported against the first positive reporting date from a polymerase chain reaction (PCR) or lateral flow test (LFD).
They were previously assigned to the date a positive PCR was recorded.
Officials also said one health board in Scotland has not been able to submit Covid data since Sunday due to a technical issue, so its figures have been rolled forwards from Saturday.
So far, 4,400,229 people have received their first dose of a Covid-19 vaccination, 4,087,517 have received their second dose, and 3,204,311 have received a third dose or booster.
