Ferrier at Glasgow Sheriff Court
We told last month how she was arrested after handing herself in to a cop station.
It is alleged the Independent MP for Rutherglen and Hamilton West travelled to Westminster after taking a virus test.
She spoke in parly then allegedly returned to Glasgow after her result came back as positive.
Ms Ferrier answered an invite warrant at Glasgow Sheriff Court today.
She made no plea or declaration during the two-minute private hearing and was granted bail.
She wore a woolly hat, face mask and black coat as she left court with her lawyer Paul Kavanagh.

In October the Met took no further action against Ms Ferrier after a probe.
Last month, Police Scotland said: “Officers arrested and charged a 60-year-old woman in connection with alleged culpable and reckless conduct.
“This follows a thorough investigation into an alleged breach of coronavirus regulations between September 26 and 29.”
After the story broke, she apologised and claimed having the bug made her “act out of character”. But she refused to quit her £82,000-a-year role.
Ms Ferrier is due to appear in court again at a later date.
