On Monday she took a train from Glasgow to London.
Despite learning she had tested positive that evening, she returned to Scotland on Tuesday.
Party leader Ms Sturgeon called it a “flagrant and dangerous breach of the rules, possibly the worst imaginable”.
But she is powerless to sack her pal who has been suspended by the party.
Scottish Tory leader Douglas Ross questioned the SNP’s timeline, saying: “The SNP say they only found out about any wrongdoing on Thursday.
“That means we’re supposed to accept that the SNP found out Margaret Ferrier tested positive on Wednesday — and asked nothing.
“The SNP’s timeline is full of holes.”
The Met and Police Scotland are probing possible health rule breaches over her trips.
